Our Dharma Teachers’ Retreat is back! On October, 13-14, 2018, the Kwan Um School of Zen's dharma teachers will come together for practice, conversation, and shared learning. The Planning Committee is developing the agenda and workshops based upon the great ideas you have sent them. Please revisit this page in the coming weeks for more information about the Dharma Teachers Retreat, 2018.

Travel scholarships are available for those of you who live a significant distance from the Providence Zen Center. Please contact your Guiding Teacher about applying for a travel scholarship to attend the 2018 Dharma Teachers' Retreat.

To help with your travel plans, here's an initial schedule for the weekend, subject to change. Please note that Sunday’s schedule is a little longer than our typical sangha weekend. The formal part of the program will end at 11:45 on Sunday, to be followed by a circle talk starting at noon, and lunch running from 1 to 2 pm.
