Sesshin, our Soto Zen form of intensive meditation retreat, offers us the chance to deeply investigate the true nature of this human life. Seattle Soto Zen will again host a five-day residential sesshin at Camp Indianola. The retreat will be co-taught by Eko Jeff Kelly and Nomon Tim Burnett
Our silent sesshin will include zazen, kinhin, service, Dharma talks, dokusan and oryoki meals. Oryoki instruction will be available. Camp Indianola is situated on Puget Sound, across Agate Passage from the north end of Bainbridge Island. It offers beautiful views and the chance to walk on the beach during breaks. The zendo is a wonderful high-ceilinged space facing the water. We will be sleeping dormitory style in eight shared bedrooms with some options for doubles and singles.
To attend, you must have completed at least one full-day retreat or have permission from one of the teachers. You may attend the weekend portion of the sesshin or attend the entire sesshin.
The weekend portion runs from Friday,7pm to Sunday, 5pm.
Further details and registration available at: the Seattle Soto Zen website
Begin: Friday, Sep. 14, 7:00 pm
