1-Day Retreat (Online)

Event Description

Come practice and learn together with us online! Build diligence, experience camaraderie, and have fun as we explore self-mastery through Chan meditation.

Requirements to be accepted:
1. Previous instruction in basic meditation.
2. A commitment to all-day practice.
3. A PC or smart-phone to connect with the retreat.

Please approach this virtual retreat as if you were practicing in the Chan Hall: set aside a dedicated space in the comfort of your own home for seated meditation; let your housemates know that you should not be disturbed; and do not distract yourself with talking, reading, or using unnecessary electronic devices.

When sitting for extended periods, floor cushions or a meditation bench are ideal for allowing you to establish a stable, yet comfortable position. Alternatively, a sturdy, comfortable chair may be appropriate for your body. Ensure that when seated at the edge of your chair your thighs can be level with the floor.



This event is priced on a sliding scale. Please consider your registration as a moment to practice generosity by paying at the highest rate that you can afford. Your generosity supports Dharma Drum Retreat Center, staff, your fellow practitioners, and our continued efforts to help people to learn and grow. Any amount paid above the Base rate is a tax-deductible donation to DDRC. Please contact us if you need the tax receipt.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Please register by 12pm (Pacific Time) the Thursday before the event.
