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
Summer 2014 Sesshin at Sosen-ji
Saturday, July 12, 2014

Due to a small turnout, the summer zazenkai has evolved into a one day sit on Saturday, July 13th, from 5 AM to 9 PM. Participants can stay Friday and Saturday nights if the hours make travel difficult.

Three meals will be served on Saturday; there will be an informal breakfast Sunday after the 6 to 7 AM sit. The regular 10 to noon sitting on Sunday will be followed by tea and whatever snacks people bring, plus any leftovers from Saturday.

The cost for one day and night is $45. Please contribute $25 if you stay a second night. Dana to the teacher is not included in the cost.

Let us know if you plan to attend and if you wish to spend a night or two. Thanks.

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.
