Autumn Sesshin 2020: September 28-October 4
September 28 @ 5:00 pm - October 4 @ 1:00 pm
Our 2019 6-day Autumn sesshin begins September 28 and ends on Sunday October 4. Join us for this period of deep practice; sink into the boundless reality of the Dharma, finding the ease and joy in being human that Dogen speaks of as the characteristics of true meditation practice.
Each day will begin 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 (work practice) to help tend the land and facilities at Mountain Cloud. Click here for a sample schedule
