Deepen Your Practice

There are many ways to deepen your practice.

Our sangha offers weekly opportunities for supporting Buddhist practice in everyday life. In addition, Dokusan is available by schedule; work days in Asheville are bi-monthly. Retreats are semi-annual.

Designed in the formal Soto Zen tradition of Shasta Abbey, Anattasati Magga retreats offer you the rare opportunity to let the world take care of itself while you absorb the silence and stillness of retreat.

Work Days
(Formerly Practice Days)

Work Days are a mindful dedication to the care of our Sangha House in Asheville. Meditation and work will be integrated as we learn to bring the mindfulness of meditation to everyday activities.

Dokusan is Buddhist spiritual guidance for inquirers of Buddhist prospective related to their spiritual practice. Inquirers bring their questions about meditation, lay practice, Buddhist philosophy and concerns to the Teacher. The Teacher does not provide ways to ease everyday life; the Teacher points the way to liberation.
