About

Sesshin means "to touch the mind," to return to the normal, original condition of the body-mind. It is the name given to Zen retreats.

Sesshin will vary in length from half-day to several days, and consist of zazen, work practice (samu), and meals. Longer sesshin may include ordination ceremony or lectures (teisho).

Upcoming sesshin will be announced in the dojo and will be sent out to those on the sangha email list. Accommodations are available on nights before, after, and during all retreats.

Though beginners may attend a sesshin, if you do not have experience with zazen, it is recommended that you first attend an orientation. Register at least one week in advance for all retreats.
