Oryoki Training
On the Saturday before our one day retreat we hold a one hour training in the use of oryoki bowls.  Oryoki is a ritualized way of eating meals practiced by zen monks in Japan.  The two meals we have during the one day retreat are oryoki style meals.  Eating oryoki style is a little complicated, but a lot of fun.  It is probably a good idea if you have never done it before to come to the training.  People who have done it for a while are also welcome to get a refresher training.
