Sesshins are Zen meditation retreats held in strict silence with about 10 hours a day of formal zazen.  The Center schedules two of these relatively short sesshins each year, one in September and the other in February or March.  They’re led by one of Roshi’s senior students (Eryl Kubicka for this one) and, for those who have never attended sesshin before, they’re an excellent way to advance your practice.

You can apply for sesshin even if you’re not a Center member, but we do look for experience with extended sitting (and one good way to do that is to come for an all-day sitting).

You’ll find links to a lot of information about sesshin as well as a schedule of others that are coming up and an online application form here.
