5-Day Sesshin at the Farm (Covid safe) September 2022
We gather in person to sit together for twelve hours a day in stillness. In this tradition, we begin at 6 am and end at 8:50 pm, with 50 minutes sitting alternating with 10 minutes walking plus three meals and a little shared work.
We arrive Thursday evening after supper – just a chance to get settled before night. Sesshin begins Friday morning and ends Tuesday noon (followed by closing circle, informal lunch, and optional private interviews).
If you’ve never done a meditation retreat before, we’ll have a conversation to find out whether this will work. Usually people start with something shorter and easier.
It’s okay to do walking meditation or to take a break if tired. We’re fragrance free and don’t use incense, for the sake of accessibility.
Registration is required two weeks in advance, whether full time, part time, or commuting. $40/day for costs; please also offer a donation for the teacher. For questions contact Shodo.
