7-Day Sesshin

7/16/2017, 8:00pm - 7/23/2017, 10:30am at Myoshinji

Our July 7-Day Retreat begins Sunday evening, 7/16 and ends on Sunday morning, 7/23. The registration fee includes lodging and three vegetarian meals daily. Like zazenkai, sesshin are silent retreats consisting of multiple meditation periods throughout each day with 3 services (chanting) and 3 meals using oryoki bowls. Oryoki sets (traditional monastic eating bowls and utensils) are required for meals and may be purchased or rented. Part-time attendance is acceptable.

Our annual Gate of Sweet Nectar Ceremony will take place the evening of Saturday, July 22. This year, we will offer the opportunity to dedicate beautiful memorial lanterns to the memory of loved ones who have passed away.

Students typically have multiple opportunities for personal instruction (dokusan) with our teacher, Myoyu Roshi. There are work practice periods and talks by Myoyu Roshi or a senior student most days. Please join us for this retreat.

$350 for current members, $420 for others.
