June Virtual Sesshin Notes

If you’re still thinking about attending the June sesshin, which starts next Monday, June 8, there is now an application deadline: Saturday, June 6, 3:30 pm.

For some helpful tips on how to get the most out of this virtual sesshin, you can refer to “Setting Up for Online Sesshin.” And the guidelines and schedule sent out in an earlier email are still available: “Guidelines for Online Sesshin.” If you’re going to attend, we’d recommend printing out both of them and having them available.

Sesshin ends at 3:00 pm, Thursday, June 11. There won’t be any Zoom sittings Thursday evening or Friday morning. The next Zoom sitting will be Friday, June 12, 7:00– 8:00 pm.

We’ve held a couple practice sessions so people can get familiar with the online dokusan process. We’ll hold another Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm and try to answer any questions you have.
