Half-Day Sitting, Sat. August 12

We will be hosting a half-day sitting on Saturday, August 12th. The program begins slightly earlier than the regular Saturday program (6am) and includes a semi-formal oryoki breakfast in the dining room and an additional period of zazen after the dharma talk. Everyone is welcome to join for any or all of it, but we request that you sign up so we know how much food to provide if you intend to come for breakfast. We would also appreciate a $25 donation ($20 for members) to cover the cost of the meal, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

You can visit the event page for the full schedule and to register, or you can sign up below.
