One day retreats: We occasionally offer one day retreats throughout the year. They consist of the basic practices of sitting, walking, and bowing meditation, and like other retreats, include a vegetarian meal. The schedule for the one day retreats does vary, but generally they are held 8:30am – 4:30pm.
Yong Maeng Jong Jins (YMJJ): “To leap like a tiger while sitting.” Yong Maeng Jong Jin retreats can be different lengths, with the Zen Center of Las Vegas usually offering 3 day retreats. Retreats consist of traditional Zen practice, along with work practice and rest periods. Temple style meal service is included. The retreat also includes talks, kong-an interviews with the guiding teacher. We do ask that you have some practice experience before attending this retreat.
Kido chanting: Usually held on special occasions, Kido chanting is one day, usually 9:00am – 3:00pm. We chant “Kwan Seum Bosal” (Korean name for the bodhisattva of compassion). Everyone is welcome.
