Calgary Soto Zen is offering the sangha’s first practice period this spring:
March 9- April 22, 2018
A Practice Period is an intensified time of practice; a tradition that began in the Buddha’s lifetime. During the rainy season monks would seize their solitary wandering and gather together for this intensive period of meditation and study.
This tradition continued into Zen monastic practices in Japan and has made its way into the schedule at Calgary Soto Zen.
