Welcome to Sanshin Zen Community!

October 5 - 7
Although the fall work weekend includes zazen and liturgy, the majority of our days will be spent taking care of the temple and grounds. For first-time visitors the weekend is a good opportunity to get to know Sanshin's practice and sangha; for old friends it's a chance to reconnect and help to ensure that our temple and grounds continue to support our practice.

Join us for one day of practice in the style of our sesshin, a retreat devoted simply to sitting zazen. The schedule will be that of a typical sesshin, but the day itself will be shorter than the usual 4 am - 9 pm. Whether you're just establishing your practice and are looking for the opportunity to try some intensive sitting or you're an experienced practitioner with limited time, this one-day sitting is a chance to set aside all other home and temple activities and just engage in zazen.
