Weekend Zen Retreat

A thousand mountains are covered with snow.
Why is one peak not white? ~ Zen koan

Rohatsu (December 8) marks the morning Buddha achieved realization. Sesshin is a deep Zen retreat and a rare opportunity for us to experience this same awkening.

There are healthy vegan meals, interviews with the teacher, Zen talks and discussions, music and lots of quiet warmth and community to settle into. Some meditation experience is recommended however this retreat is open to everyone.

The retreat is both residential and non-residential. If you would like a more intimate experience of sesshin, there is room to stay at the Centre during the retreat.
