After our Opening Ceremony (1/17) and beginning the Shuso's Class (1/21 & 1/28), Practice Period continues to open with a one day formal Zen Sesshin on Saturday February 3rd.
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 sitting and walking meditation, Dharma Talk, dokusan with the teacher, formal oryoki meals, breaks, and afternoon tea.
Schedule: 6am - 5pm full-day sesshin with silent oatmeal breakfast and sack lunch. Feel free to bring an item to share with the oatmeal for the group breakfast and don't forget your sack lunch.
Note changes from the original listing: please bring a sack lunch; we will end at 5pm (not 9pm).
Options: unable to attend the full day? Join us for just the Shuso's Wayseeking Mind 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).
