The Boundless Way Zen ango retreat is in its second week at Boundless Way Temple in Worcester, MA. We are hosting an "open-house" retreat, with four practice periods each day that include talks and individual meetings with teachers, as well as sitting and walking meditation. All of the talks are on-line -- even if you can't join us, you can hear the talks and the discussions (dharma dialogues) that follow at this link:
If you can come in person, here is the daily schedule, through March 12. Ango ends on Thursday, March 13 at 1 pm.
You do not need to register for ango unless you plan to stay overnight. For overnight registration: www.boundlesswayzen.org/Registration/Ango.html. Donations for any part of a practice period will be gratefully received in the collection bowl in the front hallway.
