September 2021 All-Day Sitting
September 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT
Saturday, September 18
One Day Retreat, led by Norman Fischer
Green Gulch remains closed to large group gatherings and we continue to honor Marin County’s Public Health orders and social distancing. Therefore, this month’s All Day Sit will again be held on Zoom. It will include meditation, service and chanting, a break for lunch, a dharma talk, and dokusan (private interview with Norman).
The sitting begins at 9:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm. A detailed schedule of the day can be found below. It will also be emailed to all registrants along with along links to sign up for interviews with Norman and senior teachers.
Our Inos will open the Zoom meeting room at 8:45 am. Please log on early and on mute so as to begin our day in silence.
Registrations are required for this event; please see the button at the top of this page. Because of privacy and security concerns with the Zoom platform, we are distributing the Zoom link and password only to those who register. To receive the Zoom link and a reminder the day before the event, register at the top of this page.
For Zoom All Day Sittings: $20 or whatever you are able to give.
Thank you! We look forward to sitting with you.Donate Today More All Day Sittings All Practice & Study Events Join Our Mailing List
