Deepen your practice

One retreat with others can be worth one year of practice done alone.

Hollow Bones Zen offers meditation retreats throughout the year in-person and online, enabling sangha members to plan seasonal concentrated practice. Our in-person retreats are hosted by zen centers and other spiritual community facilities that allow for dedicated time spent in silence, with time for nature walks, and group meals. These retreats also offer excellent opportunities for beginners to deepen their practice and learn alongside experienced community members. Also see our calendar of special events for unique opportunities to practice.

Rohatsu, also known as Bodhi Day, is a celebration of the historical Buddha’s awakening. At Hollow Bones Zen, our tradition is to engage in this celebration with a silent retreat, offering an opportunity for deep inquiry and the continuance of our awakening.
