ZAZENKAI

While this is a 'typical' timeline for a Zazenkaii - like everything, it is subject to change. We do tend to stick to this schedule. If other commitments don't allow you to attend the full day, you're more than welcome to join us for any part(s) of the day that you can. We only ask that you enter and leave the retreat as quietly as possible, so as not to disturb the silence being observed.
