Work Days



On the weekends we offer the opportunity to practice all aspects of Zen training—meditation, scripture recitation, Dharma study, and community work for the benefit of all—in a dedicated environment. Please feel free to join for all or any part of it; please join us for lunch and bring something to share with everyone. Overnight accommodation is available; please give us one day's notice that you would like to stay overnight.

Weekend Visits
Each weekend, our schedule is arranged to focus on lay practice. Our lay guests join the monks in the daily schedule of meditation, morning and evening service, meals and working meditation. A weekend visit gives participants an overall introduction to Zen Buddhism as practiced at Pine Mountain Temple. For those who are committed lay practitioners, regularly dedicating a weekend to the practice brightens the mind.
