Online Winter Sesshin

Friday June 11 to Wednesday June 16 (including Queen’s Birthday June 14) via Zoom

This sesshin is led by Jane Andino, apprentice teacher. Jane has been a student of Paul Maloney’s for many years, and was invited to be an apprentice teacher in 2018. She is a leader in the Blue Mountains Zen group, and also works as a musician. Maggie Gluek, roshi will assist, giving teishos and dokusan.

Winter sesshin starts on Friday evening and finishes at midday on Wednesday. There are four blocks of zazen per day: Early morning, Late morning, Afternoon and Evening.

Participants can sign up for any blocks, but are urged to take advantage of the long weekend and sign up for the full Saturday, Sunday and Monday sittings.

Attending the opening of sesshin on the Friday evening is mandatory unless there are exceptional reasons not to.

The schedule will include zazen, walking meditation, sutra recitation, dokusan and a teisho every evening, all from the comfort of your own home.

As we move between the blocks of zazen and the demands of a busy schedule, we find how to be unbusy in all our activities.

Full sutra service –MP3 recording

Jane began Zen practice in 2006 with a group of Buddhist meditators in the Blue Mountains. At this time she also took up koan study with Paul Maloney, and has continued to study with him since then. Since 2007 she has attended sesshin led by Subhana Barzaghi, Gillian Coote, Paul Maloney, Maggie Gluek and Allan Marett. In 2011 Paul Maloney was invited to be the teacher for the Blue Mountains Zen sangha, and since then Jane has been co-ordinator for the group. She has given dharma talks for SZC group in the Blue Mountains and at Annandale. Jane has a BA(Asian Studies) from A.N.U., but has devoted her working life to music as a pianist and composer, particularly in performance with her husband Ricardo.
