Schedule for the Surprise! Weekend Retreat!

Good Evening, Err'body.

So here's an ersatz schedule. You know how we do and you know how we be. It's a super causal sit so the schedule isn't set in stone.

But there are three *definite* things about this retreat that you should know.

1. It's happening at 1420 Finnland Dr., Nashville TN 37207
(For pictures of the building, go to the AirBNB)

2. It's *this* Saturday (8/4) starting at 9am and also *this* Sunday(8/5) at 9am. (Come when you can, leave when you have to. No judgements here. We all got a life outside of NZC)

3. The focus is to spend most of the day in silent meditation. So come prepared to do some zazen!

All this being said, what follows is our (mostly) aspirational schedule.
