All-Day Sits (Zazenkai)

“We can’t do it by ourselves, and no one else can do it for us.”Every Day IS a Good Day
–from the Boundless Way Zen liturgy book

Day long retreats are held at the Greater Boston Zen Center.

A powerful way to more deeply explore your practice is to attend a zazenkai, an all-day sit. At GBZC “all-day” means 9am-4:30pm. You are always welcome to attend for any portion of an all-day sit, as suits your schedule. The retreat includes liturgy, dokusan/interviews, zazen, walking meditation, and a Dharma talk with discussion.

All-day sits at GBZC are usually led by Josh Bartok and another BoWZ teacher. Everyone will have the opportunity to have interviews with both teachers, and people may even have the opportunity to see each teacher twice.

You can either bring a bag lunch, or buy something near the center during the lunch break.

For 2012-13 our scheduled all-day sits are on Saturdays, monthly (except December).
Dates: 9/22, 10/27, 11/24, 1/12, 2/9, 3/23, 4/13, 5/25, 6/8
Time: 9am-4:30. Come for any or all.
Please note: This schedule is subject to change up to 30 days prior!
