Those who are in the early stages of their practice are encouraged to join us for our Beginner’s Mind Sesshin. Sesshin (intensive practice retreats) are an important part of Zen practice. This retreat will introduce students to the formal practices that are integral to sesshin, including: sitting and walking meditation; liturgy; taking meals in the traditional, formal oryoki style; and work practice. Roshi will help students understand the many components and aspects of retreat practice, offering opportunities to ask questions about Zen practice and to explore the important student-teacher relationship.

The sesshin begins Friday evening (3/16) and concludes Sunday morning (3/18). The cost of this retreat is $75 and includes overnight lodging Friday & Saturday, as well as all meals. Since this retreat is specifically intended for beginners, we expect that you may have questions. Please feel free to contact us and we'd be happy to talk with you.
