Community Work Day


Please join us for a Saturday, Community Work Day as we work together joyfully and harmoniously preparing for our summer retreats.  One session will begin at 9:00 am with a gathering and we will have a second session at 3:00 pm.
Join us for one or both sessions.  Please email or call 845-213-1782 and let us know if you're coming so we can plan better for food.

To participate in working meditation can be a great happiness. It is an opportunity to engage in the maintenance and care of our practice center while enjoying our practice of mindfulness. When we wash the cars, turn the compost piles, or chop wood, we stay mindful of our breathing and the activity that we are doing. When we work in the garden, we get in touch with the plants and nourish our connection to the earth. Sweeping and mopping the meditation halls, we see that we are already practicing to calm our mind and body.

Working Meditation links us to our everyday life, both here and when we return home.
