This Zen Practice Retreat will be devoted to exploring the living practice of zazen, which includes the formal practice of upright, warm-hearted sitting meditation, as well as the joyful, continuous practice of enacting Big Mind in everyday life.

Participants will practice daily early morning zazen with the Tassajara students and enjoy mindful meals together. Between 9am and noon each day, retreat participants will join Abbot Jiryu in the zendo for periods of zazen and walking meditation. There will be a daily class in the afternoon with Abbot Jiryu. In the evening, zazen or dharma talks will be offered.

Those participants who wish to will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Abbot Jiryu to discuss their practice.

There will also be time each afternoon, before and after class, to rest, relax, and enjoy the natural beauty of Tassajara.
