Dive deep at our three-day Fall sesshin at beautiful Camp Sealth. This will be a formal retreat in the Rinzai tradition: seated and walking meditation, chanting, dharma talks, silent walks through the woods, and optional interviews with our Abbot, Koshin Chris Cain.

Dharma talks by are open to the public at 10:15 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (Wrangler Lodge at Camp Sealth, 14500 SW Camp Sealth Rd, off of Wax Orchard Rd. Enter Camp Sealth and continue straight then follow signs to Wrangler Lodge.)

All meals and dormitory-style accommodations included. If you have questions, or if you have not previously attended a multi-day retreat, please contact the registrar at registrar@pszc.org. From out-of-town? The registrar will find you a place to stay the night before if needed.

The retreat will begin at 5pm on Thursday and end at 4pm Sunday. We encourage at least one 24 hour period of attendance, but exceptions can be made for life circumstances. Please contact the registrar with questions at registrar@pszc.org.
