The weekend overnight sesshin/retreats are ideal for beginners who want to deepen their ongoing practice; it is also recommended for more experienced practitioners who are unable to attend the longer retreats. Every quarter of the year we hold a Beginner’s Mind Sesshin, aimed specifically at new practitioners. It is best to take part in at least one of the shorter sesshin before signing up for a longer one, if possible. The schedule is full and the days are long, so it works best to experience a weekend-long sesshin first.
Characterized by silence and deep introspection, sesshin is recommended to anyone who is sincerely interested in experiencing intensive Zen training. First-time participants will be given an orientation to a zen retreat, receive personal guidance in private interviews with the teacher, draw from the tremendous strength of people practicing together and experience the deep stillness that lies within each one of us. Once sesshin begins, we immerse ourselves in the rigorous practice of self-awakening.
Because sesshin is intensive, those wishing to attend are required to participate in Beginning Zen Seminars and orientations or have joined sesshins and zazen with a group at our affiliated Zen centers are invited to attend.
