Chapin Mill Work Retreat: The Final Details

Here’s the Chapin Mill Work Retreat schedule, which includes dokusan in the evenings.

As a reminder to those who are not attending the work retreat, you are welcome to join the morning (5:45 – 7:00) and evening (7:00 – 9:00) sittings over Zoom or the Center’s audio-livestream (Mixlr), which will be broadcast from the Chapin Mill zendo. In other words, the regular Zoom sittings (morning and evening) have been changed for this week only, since Zoom will follow the work retreat schedule.

Also, remember that the regular schedule of in-person sittings at the Arnold Park zendo continues during this week. You can always refer to the Zen Center’s calendar for an accurate schedule of sittings.

No sitting (online or in-person) this Sunday, July 4.

The regular Zoom sittings will resume Monday morning (7:00 – 8:00), July 5.

The regular in-person sittings will resume Tuesday morning (6:00 – 7:15), July 6.
