Sitting Meditation & Sesshins
See below for descriptions of half-day introductory and one-day offerings, as well as longer sesshins. Sesshin means to collect the heart/mind. We spend up to 7 days meditating, eating, and working in silence, devoting every aspect of the day to the realization of the Buddha Way. Sesshin meals are generally served and taken in the traditional oryoki style.
