Gratitude Sesshin: A 6-Day Meditation Retreat

Monday, November 16, 2020 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, November 22, 2020 - 1:00 pm

There is so much everyday richness that is missed when we are out of touch with the quality of gratitude. In this sesshin, we meditate as a celebration of fullness and attend to the myriad blessings of our existence together. 

In the spirit of gratefulness, there is no set charge for this retreat. And, we will prepare the meals only with food donated by the community. If you are able please bring a food donation with you when you arrive.

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.**

***For this sesshin, we are extending the option to attend part-time. Instead of attending the whole retreat, you would arrive on Friday, November 17th by our morning work practice and stay through our Sunday program. If you are interested in attending for the weekend, please register as normal and let the registrar know of your desire to attend part-time.***
