with Roshi Enkyo O’Hara and Village Zendo Teachers
at The Garrison Institute

The Village Zendo’s year-end retreat is the perfect place for quiet meditation and deep silence. Our schedule is serious (with plenty of zazen) but also spacious (with unstructured time in the afternoon for rest, outdoor walks or body practice). There are dharma talks every day, and ample opportunity to meet with our teachers. Meals are taken buffet-style and an optional yoga class, suitable for all levels, will be offered Dec 27-28-29.  If you have put off doing a residential retreat, or felt intimidated to try one, this is a wonderful retreat to attend. Come and join the Village Zendo sangha as we greet the new year with clear minds and open hearts.
