Sesshin means to gather the mind. Sesshin is a traditional seven-day meditation intensive. It includes sitting and walking meditation, oryoki meals, daily Dharma talks, and private interviews with the teacher.
While this Sesshin will be held at the end of the Six Week Dharma Practice, it may be attended without committing to the full six weeks of practice.
Generally speaking, Sesshins are for practitioners who have already established an ongoing practice relationship with the Dharma Sangha. If you are new to Sesshin practice, please use our registration form and we will contact you to arrange an interview.
All meals during Sesshin will be eaten oryoki style. We ask that returning practitioners bring their own oryoki set. (Oryoki sets can be purchased at CMZC.)
