Zendo Interior
ZCF schedules many events throughout the year, including extended meditation retreats.
Please check our Facebook page for information.

This coming Saturday (Sept 30, 2017) will be an Extended Program from 9 am to 2 pm, with extra Zazen periods. Rev. Norm Gustafson, Sensei, will give the Dharma Talk and Practice Discussion. We will observe the memorial for Japanese founders Dogen and Keizan.
As usual, lunch is silent — bring your own “brown bag.” We’re requesting a $20 donation for the extended day.

Three practice hallmarks of Zen practice are: Zazen, Retreats, and Practice Discussion. This Saturday is an important opportunity for a “mini-retreat” of extended sitting, including Practice Discussion with the Teacher.
