During the Work Week, the Sangha will come together to plant the vegetable garden, continue with improving the campus landscaping, develop the soil in the new garden plot, and prepare the facilities for the summer guest season.
We will follow a more work-intensive schedule than normal, but we will still hold morning and evening Zazen meditation. Senior practitioners or Baker Roshi will also lead dharma discussions on a few evenings instead of Zazen. Come enjoy the camaraderie and practice-orientation of Sangha work, as well as our delicious vegetarian meals.
We ask that you commit to a minimum of 3 days during the Work Week. This year’s work week will begin with an arrival dinner on Saturday, May 22nd, and a departure on the morning of Sunday, May 30th. We ask for a $50 deposit to hold your place, other than this the event is free of charge.
As of 4/9/21, vaccinated individuals can attend without testing. Unvaccinated individuals must isolate for 5 days and test prior to arrival. By May, we hope to have rapid tests available for a small fee. We are closely following CDC guidelines in order to make this event as safe as possible.
Arrival: 3-5 pm, opening dinner 6 pm
Departure: 11 am after brunch
