    About Practice Period

    Practice Period is a time in which Zen students practice intensively together. Historically, practice period started with the rains retreats of the early Buddhist nuns and monks when they could not travel due to heavy rains. During that time they settled down for more intensive practice. 

    Although we don't live in monasteries, each winter in the spirit of those in monastic practice, we settle our busy lives in order to intensify our practice. We bring our mindfulness and Dharma practice to the foreground of our lives more than usual. Annual practice periods have been an essential part of Zen practice for a thousand years and an important part of Red Cedar Zen for over 20 years. 

    Shuso Myoki Raizelah Bayen

    In the center of the mandala of Practice Period is the head student, or shuso, who serves as the center of the sangha wheel giving classes, Dharma talks, and meets in small groups with practice period students over tea.

    Shuso: This year's Shuso is Raizelah Bayen. Raizelah will be assisted by benji Ken Oates. Learn more about Raizelah at the Shuso's Class page.

    Guest Teacher: We are delighted to announce that at the opening and closing of this year’s Practice Period, Nomon Tim will be co-leading with Hoka Chris Fortin, Raizelah's teacher and a long time friend and colleague of Nomon's.

    Visiting Teacher Hoka Chris FortinPractice Period Theme: We will be guided this year by a study of several of the fundamental teachings of our lineage in Eihei Dogen's well known essay Genjo Koan (Actualizing the Fundamental Point).

    Location: Events may be in-person, on-line or a combination.Check individual events for details. Information for attending in-person or online can be found on the Our Zendo page of the website. When attending in person, please adhere to our Covid Safety Guidelines.

    2024 Practice Period Shuso's Class

    Please join Shuso Myoki Raizelah Bayen as she guides us on a study of Genjo Koan a powerful, foundational and very interesting teaching by Eihei Dogen-zenji, the Japanese founder of our school of Zen:

    It is with joy that I invite you to participate in the 2024 Practice Period class on Dogen Zenji’s text of the Genjo Koan

    In this class, we will drink from the well of wisdom that our ancestors have left for us in their commentaries on the Genjo Koan, and indulge in the teachings of contemporary teachers on the subject.  We will spend time studying, but more importantly, sensing or feeling into the meaning of this text within the context of our own lives and journeys. 

    This class combines traditional Zen learning of Dharma talks and study, with inquiry practices such as repeating questions, monologues, and writing exercises, as well as sensing practices to support your discovery of the Genjo Koan in your heart and in your practice. This class is an exploration of your Genjo Koan.

    - Myoki Raizelah

    Suggested Texts:


    Dogen’s Genjo Koan - a collection of commentaries by Bokusan Nishiari, Shunryu Suzuki and Kosho Uchiyama.


    Realizing Genjokoan by Shohaku Okamura



    Schedule: Six Monday evenings January 29th to March 11th (skipping Feb. 12th) from 6:30-8:00pm. Plus a Saturday session: February 3rd 10am - 1pm.

    Location: This class is being offered via our online Zoom Zendo.  We encourage you to make a commitment to attend all or at least most classes so we can develop community around our dharma study. 

      Resources You'll find resources related to the class online.

      Registration: Registration is required. The fees help us cover the costs of administering this class - thank you for your support.

      About Raizelah:

      My Buddhist journey began at Green Gulch Zen Farm 36 years ago, working on the farm, sitting zazen, and participating in Wendy Johnson’s garden practice period. I have often referred to the temple at Green Gulch as the cradle for my spiritual baby. It nourished my growth, but I needed something else at that time in my life. After 6 months on the farm, I took a hiatus from formal Zen practice, but maintained sitting practice.

      Read more about Raizelah...

      I spent the next fourteen years participating in a spiritual work school called “Ridhwan,” practicing the Diamond Approach to realization, which included daily sitting, inquiry practices and sensing practices. This approach wove together the psychological work sometimes done in therapy with spiritual practice.

      I returned to formal Zen practice about 18 years ago. In my attempt to find some quietude (I had a toddler and a preschooler at that time). I signed up for a 1-day sitting at Spirit Rock Buddhist Center, during which I reconnected with Norman Fischer, who had served as Director at Green Gulch during my stay there in my twenties. We instantly recognized one another. I was lit up by his teaching that day on the Koan called “The One is not Busy.”

      I picked-up his flier about Everyday Zen, signed-up for Everyday Zen’s next 1-day sitting, and knew upon my entrance to the zendo that I had “come home.” I felt an immediate sense of connection to this sangha. I participated in their monthly 1-day sittings and their annual sesshins for the next 15 years.

      It was at Green Gulch in my twenties that I met Tim. It was there that the seeds of our love were planted, and then were tended for many years by Buddha, while we explored other relationships, marriage and child-rearing, simultaneously but not together. We reconnected 3 years ago, which was the impetus for my move to Bellingham and my growing involvement with Red Cedar Zen Community.

      It is at Red Cedar that I am discovering what it is to take refuge in the sangha. I am grateful for the container this sangha provides to daily practice, exploring my humanness within the context of Dharma friendships, and to grow within the context of sangha roles, first as Ino and now as Shuso. Thank you for being here with me.

      An important ceremony for the Shuso's training and the culmination of Practice Period.

      Join us with a question from the heart to share with Shuso Myoki Raizelah Bayen at the Hossinshiki ceremony which also concludes the Practice Period Closing Sesshin.

      Everyone who participated in the Winter Practice Period is warmly encouraged to attend whether you are signed up for the sesshin or not.

      The ceremony is a heart-to-heart encounter between each Practice Period student and the shuso. Together we bring up the Dharma in this important empowerment ritual for the shuso and the sangha.  

      You will be invited to ask the shuso a question about the Dharma. This should be a genuine question about your own practice, life, and heart. The shuso will respond from their felt experience as the practictioner in the center of our shared mandala. 

      Registration if you are not already attending the sesshin: Please register for the ceremony here and choose between the in person and online options. If you are joining us in-person, please arrive about 10 minutes early and enter during kinhin (walking meditation).

      The sangha trip of a lifetime: two weeks exploring sacred sites in Japan
      updated 10/22 with more details about flights

      Thanks to the tireless efforts of trip leader Kando Rei Greene, working with Nomon Tim Burnett, and in consultation with several other wonderful supporters, our Japan trip has become clear! Join with an intimate sangha group in exploring the Japanese origins of our tradition. While centered on our Sōtō Zen tradition the trip will feature multiple Japanese religious traditions and immerse us in Japanese culture for two very rich weeks of exploration and practice.

      Total Cost: $2600 / person.

      Dates: April 4 - 18, 2024

      This cost includes pretty much everything during our two weeks together in Japan: lodging, most meals, in-country transportation, admissions fees, and costs of special events we'll do together. 

      Note that your airfare to Japan is not included. Bus transportation from Osaka Itami airport is Included if you fly into Osaka, Itami ITM, the international airport at the start of the trip. (Not Kansai KIX, sorry for any confusion.)

      Arriving flights:
      Arrive Osaka, Itami ITM airport, in time for our 8pm bus on April 4th. Note that due to the time change flying from North America you'll be leaving in the morning of April 3rd.  

      Departing flights:
      To take advantage of provided bus transport from our final stop at Hotel Hirashima in Katsura (Google Map) back to Osaka Itami airport on Thursday April 18th, book a flight leaving in the afternoon. Bus should arrive Osaka, Itami airport, by noon. Or stay the night in Osaka and leave on Friday morning. 

      Flights from Seattle:
      We see flights on 3 airlines from Seattle that may work: All Nipon Airlines (ANA), Delta Airlines, and United Airlines. Checking in mid-October fares range from $1300 to $1800 with the cheaper flights generally taking longer, sometimes much longer - we recommend keeping an eye on total trip duration. 

      Tim and Raizelah booked the following flight on Delta. Care to join us?

      Leaving Seattle 11:15am Wednesday April 3rd on Delta flight 167

      Arriving Tokyo-Haneda airport 2pm on Thursday April 4th.

      3 hour layover in Tokyo.

      Leaving Tokyo-Haneda at 5pm for a 6:10pm arrival on Thursday April 4th at Osaka-Itami. In time for 8pm pick up by our group bus.

      (connecting flight is on All Nipon ANA but booked as part of the Delta Itinerary.) 

      Things to remember as you book your flight:

      1) Time change - due to the time change leaving on April 3rd gets you to Japan on the 4th

      2) Travel time - pay attention to total length of the itinerary - flight searchs on the aggregator sites may list some with lower fared but you'll spend a LONG time getting there.

      3) Which airport in Osaka - we're arranging group bus transport from Osaka Itami airport (ITM) but it's not difficult to get from Osaka Kansai (KIX) to Kyoto on public transit. If you see a flight that's better for you to KIX that is an option.

      4) Share your Itinerary - let us know your travel plans once you have them!

      Deposit: a $500 deposit holds your spot. This deposit is "semi-refundable": if you cancel and we are able to fill your spot we will refund your deposit. If we are unable to it cannot be refunded. 

      Completing your Payments:

      There are two choices for paying the remaining $2100 to cover the costs of the Japan trip.

      1) Start a 6-month payment plan (initial payment of $350 and then just under $300/month, no interest). You must start this payment plan by the end of October so that it will complete before we leave.  

      Start your Payment Plan

      2) Pay the full amount of $2100 by March 1st, 2024. You may pay by credit card (just ask us to create an invoice) or if you are able to pay by check it will save us the 3% credit card processing fee. Mail your check to 

      Red Cedar Zen Community
      P.O. Box 5193
      Bellingham, WA 98227

      Have questions? Please email the trip leaders at japantrip@redcedarzen.org and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. 

      An Active Trip This trip does include walking and we will do our best to accommodate the bodies of all who wish to attend. Our Mt. Hiei tour and Kumano Kodo hiking pilgrimages involves walks (with day packs only) of 5 to 11 miles spread out over the day at a modest pace.

      An Exploration of a Mahayana Classic


      Please join us for a six-week class on The Śūrańgama (Shurangama) Sutra as we explore the five skandhas - form, feelings, perceptions, mental formations, and consciousness - and how they are all transitory and void of a separate, independent self.  We will practice meditative understanding of the wondrous suchness of reality through the "matrix of the Thus Come One", the Buddha body contained in all things. This classic sutra allows us to explore our delusive thinking and helps us let go of our habitual patterns that we often mistake as solid and unchanging.



      Schedule: Monday evenings, 6:30pm - 8:30pm from April 22nd to May 27th.

      1. Monday, April 22, 2024, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
      2. Monday, April 29, 2024, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

      6. Monday, May 27, 2024, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM 


      Location: Online in our Zoom Zendo.


      Texts for this class are: 

      1) The Śūrańgama Sutra, With Excerpts from the Commentary by the Venerable Master Hsūan Hua

      2) That is Not Your Mind by Robert Rosenbaum (highly recommended)



      Teachers: 

      Kanho Chris


      Our Tanto (Practice Leader), Kanho Chris Burkhart, is an ordained priest and was shuso, head student, in 2014 and completed her priest's training with Dharma Transmission in April 2019.   






      IkuShun Desiree Webster has been a practitioner for many years and prior to her practice in the Soto Zen tradition practiced in the Plum Village tradition. She was shuso for the 2023 winter practice period, and led the sangha on a journey through The Heart of the Buddha’s Teachings, bringing with her the flavor of Thich Nhat Hanh’s understanding. Her formal teacher is Ryushin Andrea Thach from the Berkeley Zen Center.

      One Day Sits are an opportunity for sustained quiet practice together in sangha and a great way to learn more about formal Zen practice.

      The day begins early, as is traditional in Zen training, and includes periods of sitting meditation (zazen), walking meditation (kinhin), the morning service ritual, two silent breakfast and lunch (eaten buffet style), a Dharma talk, opportunity for a private interview with the teacher (dokusan), and a question and answer time that’s especially helpful for newer sitters.

      Note that our One Day Sits are bit less formal and rigorous than our Zen Sesshin. One Day Sits include more instruction and the opportunity for quiet social connection during the meal breaks. 

       The day of practice is also available online via Zoom.

      Schedule: The One Day Sit schedule runs from 7:00am to 3:00pm with a vegetarian breakfast and lunch provided. The full schedule is available here

      Registration: Registration is required. If you are attending in-person, for the safety of everyone you'll need to follow our current COVID protocols.

      NOTE: Following the one day sit, from 3:00pm to 5:00 pm, Nomon Tim will be performing the completion of training ceremony for Ryushin Kate Korn-McKenna.  We kindly invite you to join us for the intimate ceremony and celebration of Ryushin Kate by registering separately here.  This will allow us to plan accordingly.

      Teacher Nomon Tim Burnett will offer a Dharma Talk, opportunity for private dokusan (discussion of practice), and a Question and Answer session about Zen practice.

      The retreat includes dharma talks by Zoketsu Norman and Nomon Tim, dokusan and practice discussion, sitting and walking meditation, and delicious vegetarian meals. Sesshin is a deep time for practice and reflection with the support of sangha and teachers.

      Our Covid Safety policy at the time of the retreat will be required. Details will be sent by email closer to the time.

      Schedule:
      You may attend the entire retreat, or the first or second half. Second half attendance is only appropriate to those who have sat sesshin with us as Samish before. We are unable to offer other attendance choices. Signing up is making a commitment to be part of the retreat for the entire period you signed up for. 

      Full Retreat - Friday 5pm to Saturday at noon

      First Half - Friday 5pm to Tuesday at 5pm

      Second Half - Tuesday at 5pm to Saturday at noon.

      New in 2024: Zoom online attendance. We intend to offer an immersive experience of the full zendo schedule (zazen, kinhin, dharma talks, rituals) on Zoom. Dokusan and events outside of the zendo will not be available online. We hope this makes it possible for more people to be a part of Samish sesshin. It is fine to come and go from Zoom attendance as your schedule allows.

      Schedule: You may view the Full Schedule Here.

      Prerequisites & Requirements
      This is a rigorous and structured experience. To benefit from being at Samish Sesshin please abide by the following requirements.

      • You should have attended at least one full day formal meditation retreat before attending this 7-day, 8-night, retreat. Please do not register if you have never sat a full day of formal meditation (in Zen or other traditions is fine).

      • If you have never attended Samish sesshin please start at the beginning by attending the full retreat or the first half, and do not attend just the second half. Orientation and instructions are offered at the beginning only.

      • No attendance options other than the three listed above can be accommodated. 

      • This is a silent retreat without talking, reading, writing, computer or cell phone use. Please be prepared to follow this guideline fully.

      • Following the full schedule is a core practice of Zen. Some alternate schedules can be arranged with the Ino in cases of health and other needs.

      • Plan on remaining at Samish Island camp during the entire time of your sesshin attendance, not leaving for errands or appointments, etc.

      E-Cabins are more recently built with a full bath shared with one other room. E-Cabins are in short supply in this retreat. Please choose a rustic cabin if that is possible for you in order to leave the E-cabins for those with health challenges. Consider sharing an E-cabin to that more people can enjoy them.

       e-Cabin Exterior

       e-Cabin Interior

      Rustic Cabins - simple plywood cabins built in the 1950's. Camp style bathrooms in a separate building. Most rustic housing will be single (not shared), however if couples or friends are willing to share a cabin this can make a difference in accommodating everyone if the sesshin is full.

       Rustic Cabin, exterior

       Rustic cabin, interior

      RV Camping - if you would like to sleep in your own camper, van, or trailer use the RV Camping option. Full hook-ups are available, but there is no difference in charge whether you the hook-up or not. Please do not choose the tenting option if you are sleeping in a vehicle.

      Tent - you can bring a tent and camp on the lawn. The lowest cost option.

      Dates and Cancellation

      • May 15 - Last day to cancel with full refund. Full payment due.
