In addition to our regularly scheduled practice sessions, the North Carolina Zen Center occasionally hosts other events such as retreats, work days and work weekends. Also, Sandy's teaching responsibilities occasionally take him away from the Center for brief periods of time.

Below you will find information about our longer-range schedule and upcoming events, and information concerning Sandy's attendance. Please check back from time to time to get the latest updates. You will also find useful information in the most recent Kaihan.

Upcoming Events
Autumn 2014 Sesshin at Sosen-ji
Thursday, October 23 — Thursday, October 30, 2014

The Autumn Sesshin at Sosen-ji will run from 5 p.m. on Thursday October 23 through lunch and clean-up on Thursday, October 30. The cost is $45
per night with an advance deposit of 50 per cent to reserve a seat and help with planning meals.

For reservations made after October 10, the cost increases to $50 per night. Deposits can be made in cash, by check or on-line by way of the “Retreats” page on the Center’s website.

The sesshin is open to all levels of experience as well as to part-time participants, although lodging preference is given to full-timers. Some financial assistance is available. Please visit the Retreats page of the Center’s web site for any change in this schedule and for general information.

Please note that we will greatly appreciate the efforts of those able to stay afterwards and help clean up.

We look forward to practicing with you!

General Information
Currently the Center is following its normal schedule, as indicated on the Schedule page. Please come and participate in the Triangle's only Rinzai Zen center.

The Center relies on volunteer help for its general care and maintenance, so there are always many large and small tasks that need attending to, including general tidying up and grounds care and maintenance, as well as many other opportunites to contribute time, skills and tools. Please contact Matt Young at the Center to find out what the current needs are and how you might help.

If you wish to contribute in any way, your help would be most welcome. Please call or email us for specific needs or other information.
