Winter Kyol Che 2020

January 4, 2020 through April 3, 2020

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.

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

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