Half-Day Retreat Schedule

Our schedule for half-day retreats is generally as follows:

7:00 – 7:30 zazen
7:40 – 8:10 zazen
8:20 – 8:50 zazen; verse of the kesa
8:50 – 9:15 break
9:15 – 9:35 zazen
9:55 – 10:55 Dharma Talk
11:00 – 11:30 zazen
11:40 – 12:10 zazen
12:10 – 12:20 service

We are sometimes asked whether it is OK to come to just the Dharma talk.  This is fine, but we prefer that those who come for the talk commit to the period of meditation that precedes it.  In other words, if you want to come mainly for the talk, plan on arriving at about 9:00 AM period of zazen and staying until about 11:00, when the talk ends.  If you cannot commit to the period of zazen before the talk, please arrive promptly at 9:45 AM, so that we can seat you in time for the talk.  We appreciate your cooperation.
