Our 5-day Autumn sesshin is from September 20-25. This autumnal offering is an incomparable opportunity to deepen our practice, and to 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.
We will follow our usual timetable, beginning at 6am and ending at 9pm each day. 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.
Registration and cabin assignments begin at 4pm on Tuesday September 20. We will have supper at 6pm followed by a short meeting about housekeeping information and job assignments. Please try to make it for the dinner if you can. The official sitting will start at 7.30 in the zendo.
