Practice Period at Hokyoji

This practice period offers participants an opportunity to practice mindfulness in community for an extended period. It will include sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, study time, yoga, deep relaxation, vegetarian meals, work practice, and Dharma discussion. There will be opportunities for individual meetings with teachers. We will be using the new dormitory and the new practice hall, completed in July 2019. To register, or if you have any questions, contact the Center well in advance.
