Intensive Practice Period

March 15 – April 19

This Intensive Practice Period, the Heart of Our Practice,  is based in ancient Buddhist tradition — the monks and nuns gathered during the rainy season to practice intensively together. In present day practice, it is time set aside each year when practitioners make personal and collective commitments to intensify their practice.
