The Beginning of Zen.
The World-Honored One said, “I have the eye treasury of right Dharma, the subtle mind of nirvana, the true form of no-form, and the awless gate of the teaching. It is not established upon words and phrases. It is a special transmission outside tradition. I now entrust it to Mahakasyapa.”
Sesshin is a gentle and deep Zen meditation retreat. There are healthy vegan meals, interviews with the teacher, Zen talks and discussions, music and lots of quiet warmth and community to settle into. Some meditation experience is recommended however this retreat is open to everyone.
The retreat is both residential and non-residential. If you would like a more intimate experience of sesshin, there is room to stay at the Centre during the retreat. Please let us know what your preference is. Participants will receive an email after registering with information on what to bring and FAQ reference guide.
