Sesshin – May 2022

May 1 @ 5:30 pm

Sesshin, meaning to gather the heart/mind, is a meditation retreat, done with others that deepens our relationship to our mind and to the world. In sesshin, the mind/body calms and settles, and the mind becomes clear and open. We experience the deep stillness that lies within each of us and the tremendous strength of a community (sangha) practicing together.

The retreat is in silence, with sitting and walking meditation, formal silent meals in the zendo (oryoki), chanting services, one hour of work-practice (samu) and daily dharma-talks by the teacher. Private interviews (daisan) with Sensei Joshin.

The sesshin is free and open to anyone who would like to sit zazen. There is a suggested donation of $150 . You can make your donation by using this link. Please be generous.
