There is no better time for focused practice than this! Consider joining for what you can.

Registration: It would be helpful if all participants would send an email confirming your plan for attendance to Barb Carey (click here) including your phone number. Registration is necessary for full-time participants who would like dokusan with Jack. All are welcome to attend at the last minute as well.

Dana: There will be no set fee for this retreat. We will ask for dana for the teaching. As you think about what to give, please remember Jack’s commitment to practice year-round, and to each of us and all of us during a retreat.
