July 2019 All Day Sitting

Jul 27th 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
One Day Retreat, led by Norman
Saturday, July 27th
These traditional yet relaxed all day sittings begin at 9:00 am and include meditation, a silent lunch, dharma talk/discussion, and dokusan(private meeting with Norman or other teachers). 
Starting in July, we will begin sitting some months at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center (GGF), north of San Francisco, off Highway 1 at Muir Beach. Other months, we will sit as we have in the past at NatureBridge, a retreat and conference center on Rodeo Beach in the Marin Headlands, just north of San Francisco.
See below for the schedule of venues and directions to each location.
The fee for the All-Day Sittings at GGF is $100 ($90 for current SFZC members) or $80 for those on a limited income and includes lunch. Additional donations for EDZ teachers and our scholarship fund are welcome; see the FAQ in the invitation. 
For EDZ sangha members, scholarships from EDZ are available by way of a separate form and must be requested in advance(see below). GGF also offers limited scholarships; more info is available on their website.
