Please plan to join us for the Seventh Annual Silent Thunder Order Precepts Retreat and Annual Conference at the Atlanta Soto Zen Center, Atlanta, Georgia, July 11-16, 2017.  Everyone is welcome. This is a great time for us all to come together to strengthen our community and rededicate ourselves to our Zen Practice.  During our 6 day sesshin we will focus our dharma study on the 16 Bodhisattva Precepts and conclude with a Jukai Tokudo Ceremony (Receiving the Precepts). The retreat will incorporate the STO Annual Conference on July 14 and ASZC 40th Anniversary Celebration on July 15.  Further details will be shared in the coming weeks.  Go to the main page of ASZC web site at www.aszc.org to get further information or click here to register.  Contact Zenku Smyers at This email address is being protected from spambots.
