Event description

Description

Midway between Rochester and Buffalo, New York, Chapin Mill is a peaceful refuge on 135 rural acres. The people of the Iroquois Nation once called this location “The Place of Clear Running Waters” for its abundant springs, streams and ponds. Here, in a meditation center built expressly for Zen, we come together to practice the ancient Way. Led by Karen Maezen Miller and open to all levels of practitioners, including beginners, the retreat includes sitting, chanting, walking meditation, Dharma talks and the opportunity to meet privately with a teacher. Ticket prices are inclusive for three nights and all meals.

Overnight rooms include singles, doubles, and multi-person dormitories. All bathrooms are shared and located just a few steps down the hall. If you register for a double, you will have the option of requesting a specific roommate. Linens, blankets and towels are provided.

Breakfast and lunch will be eaten in a modified oryoki style in the dining hall. Bowls will be provided.

The retreat center supplies zabutons and zafus. Chairs are also available. Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing suitable for sitting on the floor and easy on-and-off shoes.

Chapin Mill has ample space for everyone to attend. Please delay your registration until you are certain of your plans. We ask that you arrange your travel to arrive before the start of retreat at 4 p.m. on Thursday and depart after the conclusion at noon on Sunday. The center is accessible from either Buffalo or Rochester airports.
