September events: study group and one-day retreat

Zen study group 

Starting in September, Koun will lead a study group on the first Sunday of each month. Our first meeting will be Sunday, September 3, from 6:30 to 8 pm (Atlantic Time, which is one hour ahead of Eastern Time.) 

We'll be studying Keizan's Zazen Yojinki. Koun will distribute the text at the first meeting, so no need to do any reading in advance. 

 The study group will meet online only. If you're planning to join the group, we encourage you to register so we know how many people to expect (and so we can get in touch with you if we need to.)

One-day retreat: September 16

We'll be holding a one-day retreat on Saturday, September 16, from 9 am to 4:30 pm (Atlantic Time)It will be held in person at the Atlantic Buddhist Meditation Centre (817 Herring Cove Rd in Halifax) and on Zoom.

Join us for zazen, kinhin and a dharma talk. This retreat will be a little different from our other recent retreats because it will also include a precepts ceremony for some of our sangha members, who have been sewing rakusus. 

A simple lunch will be served. If you're planning to attend in person, please register by Wednesday, September 13, so we know how many people to expect. When you sign up, please also let us know if you have any food allergies or restrictions.
