After our Opening Ceremony and the first meeting of the Practice Period class, Practice Period continues to open with a one day formal Zen Sesshin.
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 sesshin oryoki breakfast and lunch.
Oryoki: please bring a 3-bowl oryoki eating set. They can be purchased from our friends at Still Sitting for a reasonable rate.
Options: unable to attend the full day?
Join us for just Nomon Tim'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).
Registration: Please use the overall Practice Period Registration to describe your intentions for practice period and register for all of the events you will be attending during Practice Period.
