Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes. — Alan Watts

Back in the early days of our Awareness Practice, Sangha gathered enthusiastically for a deeply fulfilling time of caring for our spiritual home. This new retreat offers that same joyous experience of being shoulder to shoulder with the Guide as we practice stewardship of the Monastery and the grounds — and of just peeling potatoes.

Guidance, workshops, yoga and delicious food are all part of this week.
