The retreat begins Sunday afternoon, December 28 and ends mid-day Thurssday, January 1. Sitting periods will be 25-30 minutes long, and chairs are available. A New Year’s ceremony, bonfire, and New Year’s day buffet are a special part of this retreat experience.
The cost, including lodging, meals, and retreat fee, will be $350. (scholarships are available)
Meals (except for buffet dinners) will be “oryoki” style (eaten in the meditation hall). Grace calls oryoki, “the most fun you can have with three bowls.” The first oryoki meal will include instruction, so no prior experience is necessary.
