Rohatsu: Buddha's Enlightenment Retreat

  • Mountain Rain Zendo 2016 Wall Street Vancouver, BC, V5L 1J5 Canada (map)

Please join Mountain Rain Zen community for this 27-hour Rohatsu retreat. Let’s sit together through the night with determination, then celebrate the Buddha’s enlightenment with all beings! 

This retreat is structured so that you can attend as much as you are able. We hope that a core of participants will sit the whole retreat and that as many as possible can join is for some part. 

About Yaza(night sitting) : Please join us for yaza this year and sit in the deep stillness of night, 9:00 PM – 6:00 AM. Yaza is informal, without timed periods. Yaza hosts will be there in shifts for the entire night, but participants can come for any length of time.

Retreat fees:  will be collected at the retreat.  Suggested amount for full retreat: $60, less for part-time or limited income participants.

Please sign up on the form below and check which blocks of sitting and meals you will attend. We ask that part-time participants come for specific blocks of zazen, with the exception of yaza.
