Friday June 10 to Wednesday June 15 (including Queen’s Birthday June 13) via Zoom
This online sesshin’s theme is “At Home in the World” and will be led by apprentice teachers Jane Andino & Peter Bursky. As lay practitioners, we will have the opportunity to explore the connection of our zazen to our work, our home life, our place in the wider world, and our response in compassionate action.
Winter sesshin begins on Friday evening and closes 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. This is an online/offline sesshin, so we want to ensure that you understand how the schedule will work and can ask any questions about technical aspects before the sesshin begins.There will also be a morning and afternoon dokusan period online, so for those not booked for dokusan, this will be an offline free period for outside kinhin, zazen, reading, or other meditation activity.
The schedule will include online zazen, walking meditation, sutra recitation, dokusan and a teisho every evening, all from the comfort of your own home. Please set up a quiet place in your home, so you can sit comfortably and without distraction.
Attending sesshin at home is a wonderful opportunity to integrate your zazen and work/home practice: we find how to be unbusy in all our activities.
