Half-Day Sit Saturday May 7th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
On the first Saturday of each month EBS has a half-day retreat lasting from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Each hour will consist of 40 minutes of sitting meditation and 10 minutes of walking meditation.
There is no cost. Ten minute breaks are scheduled on each hour (at 2:00 and 3:00 p.m.) to allow people to join later or leave earlier if they have other commitments.

These events are in the spirit of the Uposatha days celebrated in Buddhist countries since the time of the Buddha. It is a day when both monastics and lay people intensify their practice. The Buddha taught that an Uposatha day is for "the cleansing of the defiled mind."
