Event description

Description

Midway between Rochester and Buffalo, New York, in a place the native Senecas called "beautiful valley," Chapin Mill Retreat Center sits on 135 tranquil acres with a spring-fed mill pond, large open meadows, a simple labyrinth, orchard and walking trails. Here, in a meditation center built expressly for Zen and surrounded by Genesee County's peak fall colors, we come together to practice the ancient Way. Suitable for all levels of practitioners, including beginners, the retreat includes sitting, chanting, walking meditation, Dharma talks and the opportunity to meet privately with a teacher. Three nights, all meals included.

If you register for a double, you will have the option of requesting a specific roommate. Linens, blankets and towels are provided. There is a large exercise room designed for yoga practice.

Please bring your own zafu or sitting bench if you have one. Otherwise, the retreat center supplies them. Chairs are also available. Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing suitable for sitting on the floor and easy on-and-off shoes.
