Eighth Annual STO Precepts Retreat & Conference
Deepening Sangha Harmony

Tuesday, July 10 – Sunday, July 15

Atlanta Soto Zen Center

STO conf 2017 formal w550

The Precepts Retreat and Annual Conference is a time for our diverse and widespread sangha to come together to deepen harmony in our community and rededicate ourselves to Zen Practice.  During our 6-day meditation retreat, through daily dharma talks, we will study how the Bodhisattva Precepts and the Paramitas build and sustain harmony within the individual and in our local and world communities.  The week will conclude with a Jukai Tokudo Ceremony (Receiving the Precepts).

The retreat will incorporate the STO Annual Conference on July 13. The annual meeting of the Silent Thunder Order Board of Directors this year will focus on discussing and approving a strategic plan covering 2018-2023. The plan will be a central feature showing how we will move forward in sharing the Dharma.
