Newcomers to meditation: We suggest you attend a Sunday morning orientation to receive basic instruction before attending daily meditation sessions.
Monastic-style Retreats and 'Working' Retreats are offered. They are both open to the public but require an interview and acceptance by the Abbot and/or Head Monk.
During Working Retreats participants follow a morning & evening meditation schedule, stay overnight in the Zen Hall, and can leave during the day for work or household responsibilities.
Monastic-style retreats require full-time study and residency at the Zen Center.
Free for student-members, $100/public.
