Honoring the Way of Zazen Sesshin

10/17/2019, 5:30pm - 10/20/2019, 9:00am at Myoshinji

Honoring the Way of Zazen Sesshin is an intensive retreat with periods of zazen (sitting meditation) alternating with 10 minute periods of walking meditation throughout the day. As with our other retreats, there will be silent meals with oryoki bowls, a work period and time for rest. However, unlike other retreats, there will be no talks, no chanting services, no dokusan (face to face) instruction with the teacher. Sitting on the Buddha's seat, we immerse ourselves in our practice throughout the day with determination, great faith and great questioning. Sesshin begins Thursday evening with informal dinner at 5:30, procedures instruction at 6 and Fusatsu at 7 PM. Sesshin ends on Sunday morning with Gate of Sweet Nectar at 7 AM. Please bring non-perishable items for the local food pantry. The suggested donation is $150 for members and $180 for non-members, which includes lodging and all meals. Part time participation is allowed.

$150 for current members, $180 for others.
