January 5 - April 4, 2011
Led by Abbot Ryushin Paul Haller
Tassajara’s ninety-day practice period follows the traditional Soto Zen monastic schedule. This practice period is an opportunity for experienced practitioners to join with the Tassajara community in intensive practice at Zen Mountain Center (Zenshinji).
Prerequisite for practice at Tassajara is completion of at least one residential practice period at San Francisco Zen Center’s City Center or Green Gulch Farm; or equivalent experience. Practice Period fees:
$3,430 US, which covers room, board and tuition. Payment in full in US dollars is required upon arrival at Tassajara unless another arrangement is made in advance with the director. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer financial scholarships for practice periods. However, a scholarship (which includes tuition, room, and board) may be earned by participating in the Work Practice Apprenticeship Program
