Welcome to Sanshin Zen Community!
Abbreviated August schedule
In August, Sanshin carries out a slightly lighter practice schedule. There is no morning liturgy, no dharma talk on Sundays, and no evening activities are held. Zazen continues as usual on weekday mornings and a second zazen period on Sundays replaces the talk.
September 7 - 10
We practice in complete silence, following a schedule of fourteen 50-minute periods of zazen with a short break following each meal. The sesshin is an opportunity for participants to focus strictly on zazen with minimal distractions. Read more
