10 am - 5 pm
with Marc Lesser and Zoketsu Norman Fischer

Company Time, begun in 1996, is a gathering of people from diverse professions and occupations, and all realms of private, corporate, government, for-profit and nonprofit organizations. Company Time retreats do not propose easy solutions, but do provide time and tools to address our questions in an atmosphere of trust and confidentiality. Based on the ethical precepts of Mahayana Buddhism, we share insights and ideas on how we can bring a spirit of honesty, integrity, and clarity from our spiritual practice into our workplaces and provide support for each other to take up our livelihoods in a wholehearted way. Our schedule includes light yoga, gentle meditation, teachings, large and small group discussions, and time to enjoy a walk at Green Gulch Farm. Newcomers to Buddhist practice are welcome.

Fee: $85, $77 current SFZC members, $68 limited income. Lunch and tea are included.

To Register: Call our toll free number 888.743.9362 or our local number 415.475.9362.
