Beginner’s Mind One-Day Meditation Retreats

I lead the Beginner’s Mind One-Day Meditation Retreats at the Hazy Moon Zen Center Los Angeles, California, my practice home. These one-day retreats, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., combine the essential elements of the Zen tradition with the ease of casual instruction, informal dialogue and short, 20-minute meditation periods. You’ll come away with a complete taste of the Zen tradition: seated and walking meditation, services, mindful work and a dharma talk. A vegetarian lunch is provided. The cost is $30.

If you are traveling from a distance, overnight dormitory housing is available at the Hazy Moon for a modest charge.

The date for the next Beginner’s Mind retreat is Sunday, Nov. 9.
