Zen practice is not limited to formal meditation sessions. Zen is awareness practice that permeates everyday activity.
Dharma Field carries on an ancient tradition of offering formal work periods to maintain the buildings and grounds where we sit zazen, study, and interact as a community. There are a variety of offerings to choose from such as:
- Sundays after the public talk
- Saturday morning workdays
- Weekly building maintenance tasks
(see bulletin board)
- Thursdays in the Garden
Workdays | Saturdays, 9am – noon (lunch included)
Workdays give us an opportunity to contribute physically to Dharma Field and get to know people we might not otherwise meet. Tending to our buildings and grounds greatly benefits our community. Tasks are available for every skill level, and lunch is provided beginning at noon. A sign-up sheet will be posted in the entry room.
Next workday dates in 2015:
October 31 (seasonal outside work)
