Zazenkai August 2021

9:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday August 28, 2021

Dear Sangha,


We are pleased to announce a special event at Lakeland Zen Community in Lakeland, FL. We look forward to seeing you all at Zazenkai.

Zazenkai with Lou Mitsunen Nordstrom Roshi,


Saturday, August 28, 2021

Session will begin promptly at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm. It will include a special Jukai ceremony for Christopher Wharem at 4:00 pm.


Cost for the zazenkai is $25.00 (Plus Dana for Roshi) You may register and pay for the retreat on the Paypal link on our website:

A zazenkai, literally meaning "to come together for meditation," is a Zen retreat that is usually less intensive and of a shorter duration than sesshin.

We offer periods of Zazen, Kinhin (walking meditation), chanting service, and dokusan (interview with the teacher). Roshi Nordstrom will also offer a dharma talk.

Zazenkai is a wonderful opportunity to intensify your practice within the warmth of the Sangha, with a less formal and intensive setting than our full week sesshin.  


Lunch will be pot-luck. When you RSVP, please let us know what type of dish you will bring. Ex: main dish, side dish, dessert, drinks, etc.

           Pre-registration is required. Thank you.



We look forward to seeing you all at zazenkai!


In Gassho,

Daikin Sensei
