Autumn Sesshin

Sesshin affords a unique opportunity to deepen and broaden practice. It’s an adventure too! Who ever knows what will manifest in the Dharma realms? Having said that, we can know that there’ll be lots of zazen (“the dharma gate of great ease and joy” as memorably described by Dogen), that feet will walk inside and outside the dojo, that meals will be savoured with focussed attention, that regular interviews and teisho will be on offer, that the beauty and power of Kodoji will hold and inspire us all.

This sesshin includes Good Friday, March 30 and Easter Monday, April 2. Application form here

All places have been filled for this sesshin.
On the acceptance letter it asks you to be up at Kodoji by 4 but it should say “Please plan to arrive by 2.”  Or earlier! There’s plenty to be done in the way of setting up, putting food away, preparing for supper and organising one’s own tent or sleeping situation.
Note too that Good Friday traffic can be challenging, with (sometimes) long waits for the ferry. So, please allow plenty of time for the journey.
