Beginner's Sesshin

This is a short retreat designed for newcomers to sesshin practice. The schedule is the same as a regular sesshin, except for later wakeup times, shorter sitting periods and longer rest breaks. We talk through the details of oryoki practice during the first few meals and give verbal instruction at other times as needed. Experienced sitters find these sesshins to be a refreshing change, and those who haven't sat sesshin for a long time appreciate the chance to ease back into the schedule. Here is a sample schedule.

Fee is $80-100, members;   $180, nonmembers

Includes meals and lodging.
