There are some very exciting things coming up at Northern Light Zen Center and our friends at Morgan Bay Zendo in Surry, Maine! Here is just a quick run down of events.
On Saturday July 29th there is an extended practice. We begin at 9 am and bow, chant and sit until noon. This is typically followed with tea and conversation, maybe even cookies! If Terry is there, (Terry Cronin JDPSN) we would have kong-an interviews as well. This is not a guarantee, however.
On August 18 – 19 at Morgan Bay Zendo there is a Dharma talk and a one day retreat. The dharma talk is going to take place at the Blue Hill Library on the 18th at 8 pm and the retreat is the next day at Morgan Bay Zendo, from 8:30 am to 5 pm. The retreat will be led by Terry Cronin JDPSN. In this retreat we will spend the day in silence sitting Zen alternating with walking meditation in the Zendo Moss Garden. A traditional Korean Zen four-bowl style vegetarian lunch will be served. Terry will offer traditional Zen kong-an interviews. FMI and to register contact: Hathaway.N@gmail.com.
