Half-day March Retreat (in-person and online)

This half-day silent retreat will begin at 7 am in the stillness of early Sunday morning, and end at 1 pm. From 7 am to 9 am we will sit quietly together for three periods of zazen, walk mindfully, do morning service, and then eat breakfast together in silence – please bring vegetarian food to share. You can join us at 10 am in person for three more periods of sitting and a dharma talk, ending with noon service and some mindful cleaning up. This retreat is an opportunity to experience intensive sitting and uninterrupted meditation in the heart of the city. 

We invite you to participate in person at Black Mountain Zen Centre as we’ll be using the larger room, and you are also warmly invited to be present online.

This offering is free and we welcome donations. Contact info@bmzcbelfast.org to sign up.
