NYZ, March-On Sesshin with Shinge Roshi, March 14 - 16. For our second weekend sesshin of the year, we welcome Shinge Roshi. Roshi will open the sesshin with a talk on Friday and offer dokusan on Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately, Kobayashi Roshi cannot attend, due to a family emergency. Full participation is encouraged, though part-time participation will be considered as space allows. Also, there will be limited room to accommodate overnight participants at the zendo. For more information or to reserve your space early, please email the New York Zendo office or call (212) 861-3333.
DBZ, Samu Weekend, Friday - Sunday, March 21 - 23. Join us for a weekend of Zen sitting and work practice on a variety of projects in and around the monastery. As much as the weather allows, Samu Weekends are devoted to outdoor work. Typical outdoor work assignments include splitting firewood, weeding, raking, and landscaping. Some participants may also be asked to work indoors. Mindful work is emphasized. Call 845 439-4566, or email us for more info and reservations.
NYZ, Hatha Yoga for Students of Zen, March 22, noon-1:00 PM. Krystal Stone offers a workshop focusing on poses that increase flexibility in the hips and knees and build strength in the core muscles, creating a foundation for stronger and more pain-free zazen. Krystal, a longtime ZSS sangha member, was awarded her yoga teacher certification in 2009 from the Integral Yoga Institute. The fee for the workshop is $20. All students should bring a yoga mat. For more information, email Krystal.
