There is no charge for any of the events or the Dharma materials but registration is required for the one-day retreat.

When you register for the retreat, you will have the opportunity to let us know what you will be bringing for the potluck, vegetarian meals. As is customary at Buddhist centers and retreats, please take as much as you like at the meals but do not waste anything.

Low-heeled, easy to slip on and off shoes and neutral-colored, loose clothing without any slogans is appropriate. Please be sure skirts come to below the knees and tops cover the shoulders, chest area, and midriff. Socks are to be worn in the cultivation area. Please do not wear any jewelry that makes noise or perfume as these can be distracting.

When you enter the cultivation room, please move to a chair, bow to the Buddha, and wait quietly for the retreat to begin.

In order to not disturb others, there is no talking in the cultivation area. Quiet conversation is allowed at lunch. Normal conversation is fine at dinner. Please respect others’ wishes if they indicate they do not want to talk.

Our form of greeting is hezang (hands held together at chest level) and a slight bow.
  • How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!
