Application for Summer 2023 Sesshin – Onsite Attendance

March 1, 2023

Please fill out this application if you wish to attend our June 26-July2 summer sesshin in person. This applies to those who plan for indoor lodging onsite, camping on our land, or commuting from home or a local lodging venue.

Due to space considerations, not all applicants will be accepted. Private students of our teachers and MCZC members have priority. That said, you may still apply if this doesn’t apply to you.

A six day in person silent retreat is a wonderful opportunity to dive deep into practice, but it also can be challenging. It is useful to have done a couple of short multi-day silent Zen style retreats (~1-3) days to have a sense of what you are getting into. Something to think about if you are not an experienced retreat practitioner. If you are unsure, consider signing up for the online option of this retreat. Click here.

If you want to stay at MCZC, select an option in the application below, We have only a couple of private rooms, so if you select that option, be prepared to be assigned a shared room. We also have a good amount of camping spots on our lovely land as well as places for vans and campers (no hookups however).

If privacy is important to you and the private roos are reserved, you may find local lodging. There is much in Santa Fe, though costs can be high, We don’t have lodging that we recommend so please check online for Santa Fe lodging, Also check out AirBnb, Vrbo and other options.

For questions about lodging and onsite attendance, please contact Kieran or Johanna

You will not make any payment until your application is accepted. Once notified that you have a space, you will receive an invoice or a payment link. Your payment will hold your spot. Costs based on lodging selections are listed below in the application. If you need financial assistance for camping or commuting, please contact Johanna. No reduced costs for those who lodge onsite.

B sure to read our COVID-19 policy. You will be responsible for taking a covid test when you arrive. No quarantines required however. For all on-site retreat participants, the section titled Overnight Visitors & Mulit-Day Retreat Commuters – Any Duration applies to you regardless of your lodging situation.
