3-Day Rohatsu Sesshin
November 30 @ 9:00 am - December 2 @ 12:00 pm
“…when we practice zazen, it is not that big mind is actually controlling small mind, but simply that when small mind becomes calm, big mind starts its true activity.” ~Suzuki Roshi
This multi-day, non-residential retreat is an opportunity to set aside the concerns of daily life for two and a half days, giving all your attention to your sitting practice and taking care of yourself as you would take care of a guest. The schedule will include sitting and walking meditation, breaks and Dharma talks. Vegetarian meals will be served in a modified oryoki-style for lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday. Oryoki is the traditional 3-bowl way of serving and eating meals together in silence.
Schedule: Friday & Saturday, 9 am – 9 pm.; Sunday, 9 am – noon.
Cost: $60 for full sesshin; $30 per full day; $15 per half day (scholarships available)
Register on a Monday night with So-On Jim Hare.
