A Good Voyage of Nothing – One-day Zen Sitting led by So-On Jim Hare

February 1, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

“I have discovered that it is necessary, absolutely necessary, to believe in nothing. That is, we have to believe in something which has no form and no color—something which exists before all forms and colors appear.” ~ Shunryu Suzuki, roshi

This theme will be explored in our practice and in the Dharma talk. The retreat will be led by So-on Jim Hare, Valley Streams Zen’s practice leader. This is a day-long sitting and walking meditation retreat for people with previous retreat experience, though not necessarily in Zen.

  • Please bring a bag lunch.
  • If this is your first time practicing with us or your first one-day sitting, please call Jim at 916-456-7752 or email 
  • Register on – or sign up on a Monday evening.
  • $20 or inquire about scholarship.
  • Our one-day and half-day sittings are held on the first Saturday of every month.
