Writing to let you know that instead of our five-day Sesshin we will be holding a two-day Zazenkai at RZM on Saturday, November 4 and Sunday, November 5.
We will begin both days 9 am (please come earlier so we can all settle in at 9) and end at 4 pm. Lunch on both days will be silent. Please bring your own lunch and water.
This is an excellent opportunity for intensive practice so, at Zazenkai close on Saturday, we will not be having tea service but will instead just go to our homes to continue our practice. On Sunday, Michael will lead a dharma discussion on the subject of Sangha following a simple supper we will provide.
As we are not quite certain of the exact details of the Sunday schedule, please let us know if you will be participating in the Zazenkai and if you plan to stay for supper and dharma talk on Sunday. This way we can email just those who are interested in attending.
Fees for Zazenkai will be $20 per day (but do not let lack of finances stop you!) along with any dana you wish to offer to Michael and to the temple.
Let us know if you have any questions.
