One Day Retreat, led by Norman  at Green Gulch Farm.
Saturday, February 29
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).
Everyday Zen's All-Day Sits are held at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center (GGF), north of San Francisco, off Highway 1 at Muir Beach. See below for directions and the schedule.
To receive invitations to our All-Day Sittings, sent approximately 3 weeks in advance, please visit the Mailing Lists page, sign up for the News & Events list, and subscribe to  All-Day Sittings. 
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 and may be made on the day of the sitting.
GGF offers limited scholarships through the Registration, Scholarships, and Cancellations page on 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. You will find a link to that form in the invitation (see below).
