Day of Renewal
Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The Day of Renewal workshop is open to anyone who has been to an Introductory Workhop, and is suitable for beginners and people who feel in need of a back-to-basics boost. The day includes a review of instructions for breath-practice, rounds of guided sitting, exercises helpful for developing the flexibility needed for cross-legged postures, explanation of some aspects of zendo ritual, and discussion of how to work with some common pitfalls, plus a Q & A. There is instruction in going to dokusan (private encounter with the teacher), and the chance to try it out.
A vegetarian lunch is included, and a donation is appreciated. Please book by the Thursday preceding the workshop. Please note that attendance at an Introductory Workshop is a pre-requisite.
