November 21st Retreat at Northern Light Zen Center

November 21st was a bright and clear day.  Perfect for a one day retreat at NLZC!  At one point we had about 10 people there to practice, it was very strong.  Some folks had to leave at noon but that’s okay.  We were glad for all that were there and their strong practice.  Our meal was tasty and interviews were challenging.  It was a good day.  Stay tuned folks for our next retreat!
