Come practice and learn with us.

Explore self-mastery through Chan Meditation.

The retreat also offers a review of basic meditation methods such as breath awareness, as well as brief Dharma talks.

Most people find that attending these one-day retreats regularly can help renew the strength of their daily practice.

Requirements to be accepted are:

  • A commitment to all-day practice.
  • A PC or smartphone to connect with the retreat.
  • Please respect this virtual retreat as if you were practicing in Chan Hall. Allow enough space in the comfort of your own home for seated meditation. Let your housemates know that you should not be disturbed. Do not distract yourself by talking, reading, or checking your phone.

Floor cushions or meditation benches would be best if you have them. Although a sturdy, comfortable chair where the thighs can be level with the floor is acceptable as well.
