Autumn Sesshin: Four-day Online Retreat, September 14-17

Autumn Online Retreat: September 14-17
led by Valerie Forstman

Join us online for four days of ordinary miracles with Zen practice led by Valerie Forstman.

Participants from all over the globe attend our online retreats. If you have never participated in one of our online multi-day retreats, please consider joining us. We create a remarkably intimate sense of community practice and inter-connection during these retreats. When you register, you will receive some tips for setting up an at-home zendo to support your experience.

Attendance Options

Though we encourage full time attendance, we offer a flexible part time option that allows you to choose your own sitting days and/or hours of practice. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our registrar.

Each day will begin at 6am MT with silent sitting for two hours (four 25 minute sessions with 5 minutes of walking in between). Valerie will open each day during the 9am sitting block with a short welcome and perhaps a guided meditation. For those who may find it hard to sit for as many hours as the retreat offers, consider joining the retreat at 9am MT and concluding your day at 3:30pm MT .
