Every Day Brand New – A One-day Retreat, led by Rev. Mary Mocine
April 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Reverend Mary Mocine, Abbess of Vallejo Zen Center aka Clear Water Zendo, will lead this one-day sitting. She trained at San Francisco and Berkeley Zen Centers, and at Tassajara Zen Monastery. She received dharma transmission from Sojun Mel Weitsman in May 2005.
The theme for this sitting is “Buddha’s birthday, renewing our practice.” The day will include periods of sitting and walking meditation, a Dharma talk and a ceremony to celebrate the birth of the Buddha (traditionally celebrated on April 8th in Japan).
Registration is on a sliding scale, from $20 to $50, in $10 increments. There is the option to register and pay online, or register and pay at the door. A teacher donation will be requested on the day of the retreat. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you would like a scholarship, or if this will be your first one-day sitting with us, please call Jim Hare at (916) 456-7752 before April 3rd and prior to registering.
Please bring a bag lunch to enjoy during this day of quiet, calm and attentive renewal.
