Event description
You are invited to sit Rohatsu Sesshin, the annual retreat celebrating the Enlightenment of Shakyamuni Buddha.

About this event

Rohatsu means the 8th day of the 12th month, which is the traditional day for celebrating Buddha's enlightenment. Sesshin mean 'to gather the mind.' As the darkest days of the year approach, we sit together in solidarity with the principle of awakening, fully opening to the 'wisdom beyond wisdom' that is revealed in sitting meditation.

We will sit online morning and evenings for the first five days of this retreat. The sixth day will be an all-day on-line retreat. The seventh day will be in-person at the Dharma Center. We will end with a half-day in-person sitting and ceremony on the eighth day. There will be Dharma talks on days 2, 6,7, and 8. A more detailed schedule is available on the website
