Sesshin, meaning “to gather the mind,” is a traditional silent Zen meditation intensive. It is an opportunity to come together as a Sangha in support of our practice where we create a space to settle deeply into sitting and embodying the teachings of Buddha. Setting aside grasping and rejecting, picking and choosing, together we simply meet what is most directly present with attention and openness, moment after moment.
Sesshin begins the morning of Wednesday, May 10 and continues through the conclusion of our Sunday program May 14. For first-time attendees, an orientation to sesshin including oryoki instruction is available Tuesday, May 9 at 7:45 p.m.
A document with further information, a registration form, and a full schedule is available below. Registration information should be e-mailed to us (office [at] buddhaeye.org) no later than Sunday, May 7.
