Half-Day Sitting led by Rev. Parāvṛtti Doralee Grindler Katonah (In person)

March 4, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

“Communing with the Source, travel the pathways, embrace the territory, and treasure the road.”
Song of the Jewel Mirror Samadhi

Whether sitting, walk, sitting, standing, or lying down we open wholeheartedly to the Way and Buddha activity happens on its own. Come, sit, and walk together to support each other in continuous practice.  The retreat includes periods of zazen (sitting meditation),  kinhin (walking meditation), and a dharma talk with a social lunch to follow.  Bring your own bag lunch. Hot water and tea are available.
