Join us as we head up to the idyllic Mount Baldy Zen Center for a weekend of deep quiet and peaceful practice. There will be dharma talks by Brad Warner, yoga with Nina Snow, opportunity for dokusan (private practice discussion) with Brad, great food made by the local monks, and of course plenty of zazen (just enough but not too much). These retreats are designed to be a perfect balance for practitioners of all levels. If you've never been on a Zen retreat before, it is a great way to deepen your practice in a meaningful way. 

This time we are providing you the choice of either a three or five day retreat. We will begin together on Friday afternoon as usual, and you may then leave either Sunday afternoon or Tuesday afternoon, your choice. 

Early bird pricing is $330 for 3 days, $550 for five days. It will go up to the regular price of $360/$600 the week before the retreat. Please consider the option to pay a little more to support the scholarship fund if you are able as that allows us to invite people of all income brackets to join us.
A limited amount of scholarships are available. You can email us for more info.
