Three-Day Odayaka SesshinJanuary 24 -26

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. We begin at 7:00 AM Friday and conclude around 4:00 PM on Sunday.  Please help us get at accurate count by sending a deposit  ($25 towards the fee of $100) and application by January 11, earlier if you want to guarantee a reserved spot. If you are planning to stay on campus one or more nights the suggested additional donation is $10 – $20 per night; please bring a sleeping bag, toiletries, sitting clothes, work clothes, and a towel.  Rinzan Osho will be leading this sesshin.

  • Spring Sesshin  3/22/19 – 3/29/19
