A sesshin is a retreat devoted simply to sitting zazen Sanshin holds multiple sesshin throughout the year; they're central to the practice handed down through our lineage. If you're ready to join with the community in sitting more intensively, this one day introduction will give you the confidence to begin.
Hoko will explain the basics of sesshin as it's done at Sanshin, including the context for our particular style, the forms and procedures we follow, and tips for preparing for your first sesshin. After lunch we'll engage in a mini-sesshin, then take care of any remaining questions.
The cost of registration is $45 and includes a simple vegetarian lunch; within 2 weeks of the event the cost is $52. Registration will not be accepted within one week of the event.
Introduction to Sesshin: $45

If you would like to arrive the night before and/or stay until the next morning, you may choose to sleep in the zendo, in our dorm or somewhere offsite for which you've made arrangements.

No need to add anything to your shopping cart; just indicate on your registration form that that's your plan. If you prefer a dorm space, please reserve below.
Please be sure to indicate in your shopping cart the number of nights for which you are reserving a bed; the default is one.
