Reminder: We're now following our modified February daily schedule.
IN ZEN PRACTICE
February 25, 7:15 - 8:45 PM
This free session is a great place to begin your Zen practice at Sanshin. Become familiar with the sitting and walking practices that are at the core of what we do; explore what happens with body, breath and mind; ask your questions and participate in practice discussions; and get a preview of upcoming Sanshin activities and events. You may attend once or as many times as you like; activities will match the needs of those who attend on any particular evening. Experienced practitioners looking for help with practice questions are also very welcome. No preregistration necessary; just show up.
March 5 - 8
REGISTRATION CLOSES FEBRUARY 27.
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. This sesshin-without-toys style of practice was created by our dharma grandfather, Kosho Uchiyama Roshi and practiced at Antaji in Kyoto, Japan. We carry on and offer this tradition of our lineage here at Sanshin. READ MORE
