Buddhism 101: Living the Precepts (and afternoon retreat)

9:00 – 12:00 Workshop

1:30 – 5:00 Silent Retreat

Join us this winter and spring to explore the Bodhisattva Precepts of the Zen Way and how they inform our actions in our ordinary lives. Each month we will focus on a group of precepts: The three refuges and the three pure precepts in February, the first five grave precepts in March, the second five grave precepts in April, and the Four Commitments in May. As always, we will use these teachings as a way to move closer to our own individual experiences through guided practices, presentations, and discussion.
