During the Work Week, the Sangha comes together to harvest and winterize the garden, complete fire mitigation, make improvements in landscaping and buildings and to prepare the campus for our Fall Guest Season.
We will follow a more intensive work schedule than normal but hold daily morning and evening Zazen meditation, participate in lectures and discussions, and eat one meal in the traditional oryoki style.
This event is a great way for beginners to see what monastic life is like, as well as for experienced practitioners to give back to the Sangha. We always have a great group of eager people here for the event, so please join us for the camaraderie of meditation and work practice, and to enjoy our delicious vegetarian fare!
Arrival: 3-5 pm, opening dinner 6 pm
Departure: After brunch
