WORLD PEACE CEREMONY
Sunday, February 17
On the third Sunday of the month, following the dharma talk we chant the Heart Sutra and recall both those who perpetrate suffering in the world and those who provide rescue and refuge from disaster.
with Master Ji Ru

March 7 - 10
Sesshin at Sanshin is an opportunity to practice without distraction. We set aside the usual activities -- or entertainments -- of temple life, like work periods, meetings with teachers and dharma talks, and focus completely on zazen. We practice in complete silence following a 4 am to 9 pm daily schedule that consists simply of fourteen 50-minute periods of zazen with one-hour breaks for meals.
