April 26th Day Sit


Apr 26,2014 - Time: 6:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Albuquerque Zen Center will have a day sit on Saturday, April 26th. The program runs from 6 am until 4 pm, and includes chanting, formal meals, and samu (work practice) besides zazen. It is an opportunity to more deeply manifest our own life with the support of formal Zen practice. It is recommended for anyone, but completely new students should participate in the basic beginner's orientation before attending. The meals will be formal, in silence; and an explanation of formal meal etiquette will be given prior to breakfast for students unfamiliar with this aspect of practice. Since there will be samu, students should bring a hat and gloves for grounds work around the Center.The spirit of the day sit is to temporarily step aside from our daily responsibilities; and unify mind and body in our breathing, eating, speaking, walking, and working.
Besides the basic practice schedule, there will be a dharma talk in the morning and a Q&A session in the afternoon. You may attend part time, but full-time participation is encouraged. The suggested donation is $40 for the day, but arrangements can be made for hardship situations.
If you wish to attend, please contact the Center by phone or email or use the Register button below. For planning purposes, it is important to know how many students will attend.  If you have any questions, please contact the Center.
