Odayaka Sesshin: Dec. 4 – 6:

“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 Dec. 1 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.
