Day of Renewal
Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.
The Day of Renewal workshop is open to anyone who has been to an Introductory Workshop, 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.* Register by the Thursday preceding the workshop. Please note that attendance at an Introductory Workshop is a prerequisite.
*All donations, large or small, will be gratefully received. The Centre relies on donations and volunteer hours to pay for our building, furnish our zendo, run our office, and offer workshops, sittings and other programmes. Please give whatever feels appropriate to your circumstances and to the value you put on the experience -- suggested range for donations $25 - $60.
