Upaya Sangha of Tucson is holding a half-day retreat, also called a zazenkai, at Stone Curves on January 30. This event will start at 7:45 am and run until, roughly, Noon.

What is Zazenkai?

Zazenkai can be translated as “to come together for meditation.” It offers a less intensive opportunity to deepen practice than, say, a retreat or sesshin. It will consist of alternating sessions of chanting, zazen (seated meditation), and kinhin (walking meditation). Expect zazen sessions to be roughly 30 minutes.

(An opportunity for “dokusan,” private interview, will be optionally available with our Sensei.)

Space constraints will limit participation to 15 individuals.  For more information, directions, or to reserve a space, see the January Zazenkai announcement.
