Join us at the Clear Water Zen Center For three day intensive meditation with Roshi Lawson Sachter. We will begin three rounds of sitting Thursday evening at 6:30 pm with a tea ceremony and finish at 8:30 pm. Friday and Saturday will be all day from 8:30 am until 5:00 pm where will sit in Zazen, have chanting practice, a work period, Teisho ( a Dharma talk by a Roshi), Dokusan (individual instruction) along with rest periods and lunch which will be provided by the center. Sunday will be our usual program from 9:30 am til 11:30 am and we’ll finish with a closing circle.
Please arrive at the center 15 minutes early on each day and try to avoid wearing eye catching clothing (bright colors, big logos e.t.c). You do not need to worry about keeping track of time or maintaining the schedule, all of that will be taken care of. It is a great opportunity to deepen practice for beginners and experienced practitioners. You are welcome to participate in the whole weekend or parts, we just ask that you let us know in advance so we get the food quantities correct.
Suggested donations are $30 for Thursday, $50 for Friday or Saturday or $100 for the whole weekend.

We look forward to your practice,
Clear Water Zen Center
