New Year’s Eve Midnight Long Sit
We will have a special evening long sit through midnight this upcoming New Year’s Eve. While the final format will be posted very soon, the event will tentatively consist of:
– Opening with Special and Regular Chanting
– 25-minute meditation periods interspersed with 10 minutes of walking meditation
– Chanting of the Great Dharani beginning just before midnight and continuing into 2016
There will be tea, snacks, and refreshments in the common area, and you’re welcome to sit for as many or as few meditation periods as you’d like.
Donations of $5 – $10 to either the Gateless Gate Zen Center or the Gainesville Retreat Center would be greatly appreciated, but please feel welcome to attend even if unable to do so.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 803-260-7077 if you have any questions at all.
