December 26, 2012–January 1, 2013
with Roshi Enkyo O’Hara and Village Zendo Teachers
at Wisdom House, Litchfield, CT.
In the snowy hills of Litchfield, CT, the Village Zendo’s year-end retreat is the perfect place for quiet meditation, country walks, 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. Rooms are comfortable, with private rooms available for an extra fee. If you have put off doing a residential retreat, or felt intimidated to try one, this is a wonderful retreat to attend. Come for one night or for the week. Come and join the Village Zendo sangha as we greet the new year with clear minds and open hearts.
