Our annual celebration of Buddha's Awakening.

This is a combined retreat between Red Cedar Zen Community and Seattle Soto Zen led by Nomon Tim Burnett and Eko Jeff Kelley.

Sesshin starts with an orientation (6:30) and evening of zazen (starting 7:00) on Wednesday night then continues with regular 6am - 9pm sesshin days on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Saturday night is an optional all-night sit (traditional in rohatsu sesshin) and the retreat concludes on Sunday morning with a 6am-9am practice session including the Buddha's Enlightenment Ceremony and informal breakfast.

Part time is attendance is possible. Come for either the full retreat, full days on Thursday/Friday/Saturday, or Sunday from 6am until the closing at about 10am. If you are registered for just Sunday you may arrive anytime on Saturday evening (after dinner) and do the all-night sit as well.

The practice of sesshin is a powerful opportunity - watching the sun rise in the morning and set in the evening from your seat in the zendo. Sitting a full day is do-able with a little training and experience. Each day includes alternating sitting and walking meditation, Dharma Talks, optional private meetings with the teachers, meals, breaks, and afternoon tea.
