Autumn Odayaka Sesshin: Sept. 25 – 27:

“Odayaka” means “peaceful,” and this sesshin is a little less arduous with more dialogue than our weeklong sesshins. It is especially suited for Dharma Dragons (practitioners over 60) and others looking for a more spacious daily schedule. The cost of the sesshin is $100 (Day 1 and 2 – $40/day, Day 3 – $20: PayPal). We begin at 7:00 a.m. Friday and conclude around noon on Sunday. Please help us get an accurate count by sending an application by August 11 and register below for one or more of the days. Tentative Schedule for Friday and Saturday & Sunday.  Also please register for each day via our Zoom links.  If you don’t get our weekly Temple Happenings, which has these links, please email subscribe@choboji.org so that we can send them to you.

Zoom Odayaka: Day 1 Registration, Day 2 Registration, Day 3 Registration.
