Year End Sesshin

Thur, Dec 28th, 2017 – Sun, Dec 31st, 2017
Sesshin is a Japanese term that translates literally “to unify the heart-mind.” Join us and dive into the practice of One-Body.

The annual end of year sesshin. A regular sesshin schedule builds up to new year’s eve, when we join together for different periods of zazen up until midnight. This sesshin includes a Fire Circle & Water Offering, we gather around the fire and burn slips of paper with our Affirmations for the new year.

In the morning of January 1st, we gather again for the Water offering and pour it into the Sweetwater River extending the blessings of the water to the entire community.

Sesshin is a Japanese term that translates literally “to unify the mind.” This is a concentrated practice retreat … which includes meditation, working together, chanting and walking. Teachers are available for face-to-face instruction and koan practice throughout the day.

Please check the Sample SesshinSchedule. If you are not participating formally, you are still welcome to join us anytime. There is no need to do the full schedule, you are encouraged to do as much as your schedule allows you to. Also, there is no need to stay overnight, most of our long-term non-residents commute during sesshin.
