One Day Sesshin with Nomon Tim Burnett and Shuso Nōgen Connie Martin

After our Opening Ceremony (Wednesday January 17th) and beginning the Shuso's Class (January 21st & 28th), Practice Period continues to open with a one day formal Zen Sesshin which will include Shuso Connie Martin's Wayseeking Mind Dharma talk at 10:30am.

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. The day includes alternating sitting and walking meditation, a Dharma Talk, optional private meetings with the teacher, formal oryoki meals, breaks, and afternoon tea.

Schedule: 6am - 9pm full-day sesshin schedule with oryoki breakfast and lunch. Ended before dinner as we had to move it to Sunday. 

Options: unable to attend the full day? Join us for just the Shuso's Dharma Talk at 10:30am. 

If you are attending the sesshin plan on committing to the full schedule (modified schedules with extra rest due to physical need can be arranged with the Ino).
