Grasses, Trees, and the Great Earth Sesshin: A 6-Day Meditation Retreat Outdoors

Monday, August 20, 2018 - 5:00 pm to Sunday, August 26, 2018 - 1:00 pm
Valley Sounds are the long broad tongue.
Mountain colors are none other then the unconditioned body. - Dogen Zenji

During this sesshin we open ourselves to the teachings of the natural world. We will spend a good amount of time meditating and learning from the forests and fields of the Great Vow grounds.

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.
