In this year’s five-week Intensive Practice Period we will focus our practice on the body and and body awareness. Weeks 1 through 4 will highlight: posture and breathing, body awareness, sitting with pain, and sitting with emotions. Sunday dharma teachers will speak on each week’s focus; as well as the four Wednesday night services, when we will have short workshops with qualified instructors. Readings on the various topics will be available.

Spring Sesshin

Tuesday April 18, 5 PM – Sunday April 23, 4:30 PM

Dive deep at our five-day Spring sesshin at beautiful Camp Sealth. This will be a formal residential retreat in the Rinzai tradition: seated and walking meditation, chanting, dharma talks, silent walks through the woods. Our teachers will be our Abbot, Koshin Chris Cain, and Eko Jeff Kelley, an Osho in the Soto tradition, who will offer optional interviews daily. Their teachings will focus on bodily practice, through the instructions and commentaries of masters.
