Intensive Practice

Sesshin

All day to all week

Gathering the mind (sesshin) is an all-day silent zazen retreat, with a lecture about practice and opportunity to meet one-on-one with a teacher to discuss your practice, ranging from one day up to seven days. Walking meditation (kinhin) is a ten minute period of very slow and attentive walking between periods of sitting meditation. You can experience kinhin on Wednesday evening between zazen and lecture. “Introduction to Zen” is offered one Saturday morning each month, demonstrating the details of the posture of zazen, as well as reviewing how to let the mind settle into the present.
