Halloween Day Retreat

The Northern Light Zen Center is pleased to announce a one day hybrid (zoom and live) retreat on Saturday, October 31, 2020. The basic retreat is scheduled from 8:00 to noon, but there is an option for further practice that day. 

The practice will involve alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation. Kong-An interviews are available with the Guiding Teacher.

LIVE PRACTICE
In this time of COVID we are especially mindful of the health and well-being of our members. With this is mind, we are offering live participation at the zen center for a limited number of people so that social distancing can be maintained. IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE LIVE, YOU MUST REGISTER IMMEDIATELY SO THAT WE CAN ASSESS THE SPACE IN THE DHARMA ROOM. All interviews will be conducted via zoom. If you have your own portable device (phone or laptop) and know how to use zoom, please bring it. If not, we will have an interview station set up so that you can have an interview with Terry. Let us know. 

EXTENDED PRACTICE
The set time for the retreat is 8 to noon. Terry is willing to continue the retreat that day after a short lunch break if there are sufficient numbers of people who would like to practice an additional hour or two. LET US KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE THIS.
