Led by Brad Warner, this three-day intensive retreat will focus primarily on the practice of zazen. Going deeply into silence for several days provides a different perspective than one might experience in shorter day-to-day sittings. Morning chanting services, work periods, and yoga (led by Nina Snow) will round out the daily activities. The program will also feature lectures by Brad and Soto Zen monk and philosophy professor Kevin Bortolin, as well as the opportunity for dokusan (personal meetings) with Brad. Participants will be able to take advantage of this beautiful location for hiking during free periods.

$325 – $500  per person* (sliding scale)
Early Registration Minimum: $325 per person
$350 per person after October 5

Includes full room and board (vegetarian meals) and use of the facilities
*Anything you pay above the minimum price will go to support our retreat scholarship fund and is fully tax deductible.
