A Sesshin is a multiple-day retreat in which we take time out of our busy lives to focus on our spiritual practice. We do multiple periods of zazen (seated meditation) with periods of kinhin (walking meditation) between. We also do samu (work practice) and chanting services. There will be daily Dharma Talks and Dokusan. (Private Interview)
Sleeping arrangements are dormitory style and all meals are included beginning Thursday morning with breakfast. You may arrange a hotel room if that is preferable (approx. 5-10 minutes away). For those who wish to stay at a nearby hotel, we have a list to choose from. Please let us know if you need the hotel list.
Please bring your own sleeping bag, sleeping pad or air mattress. Please also bring blankets, linens/pillows, towels, toiletries etc. We have a small shower facility at the church. There are also bathrooms that may be used for washing.
Since the retreat attendance is limited, pre-registration is required whether you are doing the entire retreat or just the weekend. Thank you.
We look forward to seeing you all at sesshin!
