Monthly Long Sit (half day retreat)
We have monthly “Long-Sits” at the Zen Center on the 3rd Saturday of every month. They run from 9AM to 3PM and all are welcome for the entire period or just a part as their schedule allows. See here for more information: Long Sit.
3 Day Weekend Retreats (YMJJ)
Periodically we join with others at a Florida Zen Center for meditation retreats that usually begin early Friday morning and end Sunday mid-day. They are intensive practice times that include bowing, chanting, sitting and walking meditation, three formal meals per day, a brief daily work period, and interviews with the retreat teacher, who is a Zen Teacher who has received teaching authority (Inka) or transmission in the Kwan Um School of Zen. With the exception of interviews and chanting, these retreats are silent, and retreats offer a wonderful opportunity to strengthen your practice together with others.
