Weekend Sesshin February 2023
In sesshin, we let in the support of the whole universe. This can feel profound or ordinary; it is actually extraordinary.
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 Friday evening after supper – just a chance to get settled before night. Sesshin begins Saturday morning and ends Sunday at three with a closing circle. Private interviews may be held after the closing.
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 easier, yet sometimes it works out fine. Contact Shodo to set up that conversation.
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. For mobility concerns, please ask.
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.
