The Zazenkai program is a one-day silent intensive retreat. Participants are required to make a commitment to be present for the entire day's program. An individual's level of experience is considered to ensure that the length and intensity of the practice is appropriate. Temple guidelines require that a person have experience practicing at Shao Shan Temple prior to participating in the Zazenkai program.
