Rohatsu Sesshin – Simplified Zen Meditation Retreat 2021

Tuesday November 30, 7 pm – Tuesday December 7, noon

The traditional week-long sesshin honoring Buddha’s enlightenment, deep in winter and snow with fire heat.

In sesshin, we let in the support of the whole universe. This can feel profound or ordinary; it is actually extraordinary.

  • Sitting and walking meditation for 12 hours a day in silence, indoors or outdoors. Cooking and other tasks will be shared on a volunteer basis. Meals are included.
  • First night orientation includes instruction in zazen and optional outdoor meditation.
  • Private interviews are available immediately after the sesshin.
  • Partial participation is possible, but please attend the Tuesday evening orientation session.
  • Simple sleeping accommodations are offered; commuting is possible but discouraged.

NOTES:

  • Advance registration is required, one week in advance. Retreats are held at a private home on a 17-acre farm, an hour south of Minneapolis, on the Cannon River.
  • Leader is Shodo Spring, dharma heir of Shohaku Okumura, founder of Mountains and Waters Alliance (MountainsandWatersAlliance.org)
  • Fees are minimal – $40/day early registration includes food and lodging; donations support the teacher in the ancient tradition called dana.
  • Feel free to ask questions. Driving directions and other information will be sent. Please ask if you would like to arrive early or stay late.
  • Covid precautions update later.
  • If you have not been here before, or if you have never sat sesshin before, please contact Shodo before registering.
