Sesshin offers a unique opportunity to deepen one's practice in a supportive atmosphere and to contribute to others doing so as well. Sesshin is conducted in disciplined silence, with every aspect of the day geared towards focusing single-mindedly on the present moment. Dokusan (one-to-one instruction with the teacher) is offered three times a day, and voluntary sitting, outside of the formal rounds, is encouraged.
The sesshins below can also be a 2, 4 or 7 day sesshin, everyone beginning on the first day. Discuss with Sensei or Hanya if you wish to sign up for a shorter sesshin(2 or 4 day).
