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.
