One-Year Big Mind Zen Program Schedule

As a member of the One-Year Big Mind Zen Program Group your tuition entitles you to participate in the following events and offerings.  Recognizing that participants will have other commitments and obligations, Roshi is presenting all the year’s events on zoom.  He recommends sitting on your own 20 to 30 minutes daily, or as much as your schedule permits, and participating in as many of the events and opportunities offered over the course of the year as you can.
