December 2019 All-Day Sitting

Dec 21st 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
One Day Retreat, led by Norman  at Green Gulch Farm.
Saturday, December 21
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 this month, our All-Day Sits will be held at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center (GGF), north of San Francisco, off Highway 1 at Muir Beach, and not at NatureBridge in the Marin Headlands, as we often have in the past.
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; please see the FAQ in the invitation.
GGF offers limited scholarships; see the Registration, Scholarships, and Cancellations page of the GGF website. Scholarships from EDZ are available for EDZ sangha members by way of a separate registration form and must be requested in advance (see below).
