Taking Refuge in This Wild World


Everyday Zen Women’s One-Day Retreat

Saturday, September 22, 2018, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Commonweal Retreat Center, Bolinas

With Chris Fortin and Sue Moon


In these challenging times, can we take refuge in life as it is,  without turning away? Refuge is both geographical and spiritual, both inside and outside.  In the wild beauty of the Bolinas Mesa, let’s wholeheartedly meet ourselves and each other.  Let’s take refuge in our own true nature and find ways to offer refuge to other sentient beings.

This retreat is open to all self-identified women who have an ongoing relationship with Everyday Zen, through weekly seminars, monthly sittings, annual sesshins, EDZ Dialogs, or participation in other EDZ sanghas in the Bay area or elsewhere.

The day will include meditation, discussion, and time outdoors. Chairs will be available for zazen. Bring your own cushion if you wish. Please bring a bag lunch, and, for outdoor time, walking shoes, warm jacket & sunhat. Water and tea will be provided. Let our registrar know if you plan to bring a snack to share.

*Registration is open. Send your check to hold your place.

*Attendance will be capped at 30. We expect this retreat to fill up fast so don’t delay!  During the first week of registration, priority will be given to anyone who was waitlisted for the February retreat.


*The cost of the retreat is $40 (non refundable) and should be made out to “Everyday Zen” with a notation that says “women’s  retreat”. There will also be an opportunity for dana to support our teachers.


*Checks should be sent to: Cindy Morninglight, 560 Redwood Ave., Willits, CA 95490.

You can contact her at, or 707-459-6091.

Along with your check, please send your email address, home address, phone number (with area code), an emergency contact name & number, and your connection with EDZ.
