When we clearly see that all things we attach to arise, endure and pass away, and surrender to that truth, we find peace and serenity. ~ Henry Shukman
Our 6-day Autumn 2018 sesshin is from Monday September 17 through Sunday September 23. Join us for this early autumn period of deep practice; led by Henry and inspired by the boundless reality of the dharma and the authentic, living Zen tradition.
Each day will begin at 6am and end at 9pm. There will be plenty of outdoor practice, both walking and sitting, and we will use some of the samu time to help tend the land of Mountain Cloud, among other things. Click here for a sample schedule.
Please arrive between 4-6pm on Monday September 17. We will have supper at 6pm followed by a short meeting regarding housekeeping and job assignments. Please attend the dinner if you can. The official sitting will start at 7.30 in the zendo.
