Work Practice

Saturday Work Practice: March 9-10

When the weather begins to change, it’s time to take care of Deep Spring Zen Temple and prepare it for the season ahead. Spring means making things ready to welcome practitioners. Tasks and the maintenance to be undertaken are very diversified and provide the opportunity for everyone to help the Community in accordance with each person’s aptitudes, talents and competence, both indoors and out. In addition to being a perfect opportunity for mindful activity, it’s a good chance to visit, meet others in the community, and get to know what happens here. There is no charge for this practice; Saturday breakfast and lunch are provided.
