Friday 8 to Wednesday 13 December.
This sesshin commemorates the Buddha’s realisation. We practice the Buddha Way together – sitting at our city zendo at Annandale during the day and going home to sleep at night. This gives us a wonderful opportunity to bring our practice into our daily lives.
It will be held at the SZC at Annandale and will be non-residential. While it may be possible to find billets for out-of-towners, this cannot be guaranteed. Participants can chose to attend full-time, or elect to attend for specific blocks (morning, afternoon, evening) on specific days. This flexible structure is designed to accommodate the demands of people’s busy lives, particularly at this time of the year. We ask only that all participants attend on Friday evening for the opening of sesshin, unless explicitly excused. We also ask that you maintain your commitment by coming to each block that you have signed up for.
Participants will also be responsible for their own lunches. Suppers will be provided on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings.
Our Rohatsu sesshin is an opportunity for us to honour and realise for ourselves the Buddha’s path of liberation.
