This October we are holding an “intermediate” retreat — a multi-day retreat that runs 9.30-5.30 each day. For people who have done an introductory retreat but aren’t sure about taking on one of our intensive retreats (sesshin) this might be a good step. And anyone who is interested in trying out a lighter schedule is of course welcome.
The retreat will start in the morning of Thursday 17th October and end with lunch on Sunday 20th. There will be a talk each day, and interviews will be offered. Optional additional sitting will be available each early morning and evening, for those who would like it. Lodging is available and breakfast and lunch will be served. Dinner is on your own.
There will be plenty of outdoor practice, both walking and sitting, and for those attending the early morning sits, we will have samu time (work practice) to help tend the land of Mountain Cloud, among other things.
Payment is for the entire sesshin and cost is the same for both residents and commuters. If you would like to stay in one of our single rooms, there is an additional cost of $40 per night (a total of $120 for the three nights).
Financial aid is available, please click here for our financial aid policy and application.
Sliding fee scale is $250 – $350
Payments that exceed $250 contribute to our
scholarship fund and are tax deductible
Please register and make your payment by October 11. If you don’t want to pay online, please bring a check or cash to the center by October 11, or make an arrangement with our administrator. Also, no refunds after October 11.
