Sesshin (Fall Meditation Intensive)
October 17th - October 20th
Sesshin, meaning “to gather the mind,” is a traditional, silent Zen meditation intensive. It is an opportunity to come together in support of our practice where ,we create a space to settle deeply into sitting and embody the teachings of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Setting aside grasping and rejecting, picking and choosing, together we simply meet – with attention and openness – what is most directly present. Sesshin at Buddha Eye Zen Community Temple includes periods of Zazen and Kinhin (walking meditation), interspersed with vegetarian Oriyoki meals and Samu (temple work periods). Registration is required. Registration forms will be available three weeks prior to the start of the intensive.
