In addition to our daily online sitting schedule, workshops, and programs, we offer a number of retreats throughout the year to provide opportunities to deepen our practice. Financial assistance is available.

Summer Retreat and Ango

Our summer intensive practice period, known as Ango, is typically scheduled in late July through early August.

Year-End Retreat and Winter Ango

Our winter intensive practice period, known as Ango, begins December 26th and goes through March. The ango continues with programs and retreats in New York City, culminating in Urban Sesshin in late March.


The Village Zendo’s monthly one-day retreat (zazenkai) is a great way to experience a short, intensive meditation retreat right here in the city.

Urban Sesshin

Each year there is an Urban Sesshin in March to provide an opportunity to experience an intensive practice period in the city. A theme is selected and participants visit sites around the city to examine aspects of the theme.
