On the 28th of December 2019 12 of us came together and sat a Northern Light Zen Center one day retreat. We hold these one day retreats on every even numbered month of the year. This month we had a nice large group. Strong practice and good teaching. Thank you to everyone and happy new year!
Due to the holiday and conflicts – potential conflicts with travel and family, extended practice on Nov 30th is cancelled. Please come to our December one day retreat on Dec 28th!

Please arrive at 6:50 for orientation if this is your first retreat at NLZC. Formal meal will be included. The practice will involve alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation. Kong-An practice is available with the Guiding Teacher during the day.
RSVP required by the Wednesday before the retreat so we can plan on sufficient food.
We hope to see you there! Come practice with us!
The 31st was our retreat day and what a beautiful day it was! Gorgeous sun and temperature. A good day to practice! We sat all day in our lovely dharma room and afterward we had cookies and ice cream. Who could ask for more? Please join us for our next retreat in October!
Hey everyone! Just a reminder that our every other monthly day long retreat is coming right up! August 31st is the day, please come and sit with us. End your summer with some strong practice. If you’re worried about sitting on a cushion all day you can use a chair. Here is an article from Lion’s Roar about that very thing. Can I sit in a chair?
Hey it is short notice, but we have been sending emails all month! If you have the urge to spend the day in practice, think about joining us. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. Maybe we will see you.
Due to the Memorial Day weekend and many conflicting schedules, the extended practice normally scheduled for this Saturday has been cancelled. Please come to practice on Wednesday nights! And mark your calendars, there is a retreat on June 29. Come join us for a day of meditation.
