Event Calendar

These things will be in the calendar:

  • MWA: Alliance events including workshops, potlucks at the farm (third Sundays), talks and retreats.
  • ZEN: Zen events including the introductory class (third Wednesdays in Northfield), retreats and sesshins (fourth weekend).
  • FARM: Farm events including workshops and volunteer events. Volunteer days third Saturday and 2-4 third Sunday. (not in April, due to Earth Day and other events)
  • Anything else I think might be of interest.


2  FARM  10-5 (come when you can) See this how you like: a work day, or a day of loving the land and living with community. We’re planting vegetables, moving berries, laying down mulch, and possibly more, depending on numbers. Lunch is provided – please RSVP!

6  ZEN   6:10 pm Study group  – long sitting, followed by open discussion

17 ALLIANCE 2-4 continue our work preparing to build a meditation hut at the top of the hill.

17 ALLIANCE 5-8 Our monthly potluck will also be a summer solstice celebration. We’ll meet outdoors to share gratitude for the gifts of the earth. Depending on who is present, we may hike to the river. Food about 6:30 or 7 – outdoors fire available, eating in or out depending on weather.

20  ZEN  6:10 pm Intro to Zen – “Is Zen a Religion?” Discussion of what makes this more than a philosophy, different from a personal growth practice – Zen as a path, a mystery, an offering, a religion.

For planning ahead – there is a second Land Care Retreat  October 26-28, and December 1-8 will be a Rohatsu sesshin of the “just sitting” style.



I’m having a little time zone problem. Until it’s fixed – the Wednesday evening Zen events are at 6:10, not 5:10 pm. I’ll try to check on other things soon. Sunday potlucks are at 5 pm not 4, work periods are at 2 not 1. Not sure what the problem is.
