November 3rd - 5th, 2017

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 zazen but not too much. These retreats are designed to be a perfect balance for practitioners of all levels. They're not too challenging for those newer to practice, but enough for the experienced zenies among us. If you've never been on a Zen retreat before, this is a great way to deepen and really get to know the practice in a meaningful way. Plus, you will be surrounded by good people in a beautiful setting, taking part in building and supporting this great community of ours.

Early bird pricing is $330 per person and will go up to the regular price of $350 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 for now and we will have a web application  form posted soon.
