Summer Kyol Che 2019

07/06/2019 @ 8:00 am - 08/02/2019 @ 8:00 am

July 6, 2019 through August 2, 2019

Kyol Che practice clarifies our direction, resulting in a more harmonious relationship with all aspects of life. The daily schedule, conducted in silence, includes sitting, chanting, walking, and bowing meditations, as well as work practice. Meals are eaten in traditional temple style. Retreat leaders give weekly dharma talks and regular kong-an interviews. Practice in our serene woodland setting with the support of Sangha members from all over the world.

Three day minimum stay. Entry and exits are on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8:00am, except the exit last week is on Friday.

Please register by Friday before your Wednesday entry date, or by Monday before your Saturday entry. If you have complicated dietary or physical needs, please register a week in advance of your entry date.
