In person sesshins have resumed at Chapin Mill. However, we are continuing to offer the opportunity to participate in sesshin via Zoom, with a live feed from the Chapin Mill zendo and with online dokusan offered during evening blocks.

The schedule has reverted to the old in-person version which you can find here.

Accountability

Once you’ve registered for one or more of the four main blocks, you’ll be expected to be present from beginning to end. This will give some fiber to our online efforts. If you know before sesshin that you’ll have to miss a bit of the schedule, due to an appointment, for example, let Trueman Taylor (cpt0628@gmail.com) know of that need beforehand. And if after sesshin has begun you find that due to unforeseen circumstances you have to miss one or more rounds of a block for which you signed up, please notify the designated online monitor as soon as possible.

Dokusan

We ask that those who wish to be eligible for dokusan attend at least two of the four blocks of sitting.

Applications

Just apply in the usual way, indicating that you wish to attend on line. If you plan to attend part time, note which blocks you’re signing up for.  

Fees

For Zoom sesshin we leave it up to each participant to contribute whatever they can afford. The Center could very much use an infusion of revenue to help compensate for the cancellations of sesshin and rental retreats at Chapin Mill, but then many members will also feel financially strapped. So just give what you can afford.
