Chapin Mill Work Retreat: June 26 – June 30

Our annual four days of work, zazen, and country living begins with sitting on Tuesday evening and wraps up with lunch on Saturday. All members, trial members, family, and friends are welcome! Let us know whatever times you’d like to be there, so we can plan for you. If you’d like to stay overnight, you can count on a room and a bed. There’s no fee for the work retreat (although donations for food are welcome).

Please consider pitching in for the yearly event. The Center counts on it to accomplish many of the tasks at Chapin Mill for the whole year.

Here’s a link to more information and the daily schedule.

Finding Your Seat: July 7 – July 28

This is our program designed for anyone who’s looking to get more solidly established in their sitting practice. The next installment begins on the first open Saturday after this weekend’s Introductory Workshop (and after the Work Retreat) and runs for four weeks.

We get together in the Community Space behind 7 Arnold Park from 11:00 to noon and mix in a short sitting with questions and answers. There’s a bit more info on the website here.
