The Joy of Work Period at Tassajara

Tassajara work periods happen in April and September, when a band of enthusiastic volunteers descend on the valley and roll up their sleeves to transform it into a summer haven and retreat center (in April) and back into a monastery (in September).

This year, long-term practitioner Judith Keenan, carpenter and film-maker, brought her camera along with her construction tools, and here are the wonderful results.
