Cultivating the Empty Field Sesshin: A 6 Day Meditation Retreat On-line

Monday, July 20, 2020 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, July 26, 2020 - 1:00 pm

With the depths clear, thoroughly illuminate the source, empty and spirited, vast and bright - Zen Master Hongzhi Zhengjue.

During this silent meditation retreat, we will study and practice the profound and poetic serene illumination meditation teachings of Chan master Hongzhi Zhengjue from the text Cultivating The Empty Field.

There will be daily Dharma talks on the theme as well as opportunity for one-on-one guidance from the retreat leader. 

Silver Dragons option (relaxed schedule) available for those 60 years and older.

**Sesshin is a rigorous and, at times, challenging meditation retreat that is not recommended for beginners. We require that you attend one of our silent weekend retreats or a five-seven day silent retreat at another Zen Center before registering for our longer zen retreats.**

**$50 of the retreat fee counts towards a nonrefundable deposit. We can transfer the deposit to future retreats, if necessary**
