9 AM - 5 PM
Limited to 10 participants
Hosshin Shoaf will lead a day devoted to establishing a home altar as a foundation of individual practice. He’ll provide the wooden pieces and necessary supplies and guide participants in the assembly of their altars. Previous experience with wood, building or crafts is helpful but not necessary.
The day will also include zazen, a talk from Hosshin about the various elements that make up a typical altar, and a closing ceremony at which we will offer incense, bows and chanting at our new altars.
The cost of registration is $65 and includes a simple vegetarian lunch; within 2 weeks of the event the cost is $75. Registration will not be accepted within one week of the event.
