Our retreat will take place at Great Wave’s new practice center. Please endeavor to wear appropriate clothing to Great Wave retreats. Dark, preferably black, loose-fitting clothing is best. Shorts and sleeveless shirts are not allowed. Please also refrain from wearing conspicuous jewelry, perfumes, and colognes.
Oryoki (formal meal) instruction will take place from 4:30 – 6:00 PM on the afternoon of the first day of the retreat, so please come early if you have not eaten in oryoki style before or need a refresher. It is mandatory for first-time participants to attend this instruction session. If time allows, there will also be some instruction in service formalities as well.
If you are planning to sleep at the Center during the retreat, you are advised to bring a sleeping bag, wash cloth, towel, travel alarm, and other personal toiletries as necessary. It is also helpful to have a small flashlight. It is fine to bring cell phones, but please help keep our retreat environment quiet by keeping them off at all times except breaks.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to practicing with you!
