| You are invited to explore a traditional Zen meditation retreat (sesshin) Sesshin is a time to cultivate the awakened Heart-Mind. Sesshin provides an opportunity to leave the routines of daily life and settle into the silence of this ancient tradition.
Through the practices of sitting (zazen) and walking meditation, inquiry, interviews with the teacher, dharma talks chanting, and mindfulness practice we can find the freedom of the open heart and the liberation of the awakened mind. This sesshin is suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators.
