“Sesshin” means “to collect one’s heart-mind.” This online sesshin commemorates the Buddha’s enlightenment, traditionally designated as having occurred on Rohatsu (“eighth day, twelfth month”) and is considered the most important sesshin of our year. Sesshin is highly recommended for deepening one’s practice. The schedule includes zazen, chanting, Face-to-Face meetings with Roshi and other teachers, dharma talks and time for work and rest.
“Polishing the Bones” Teisho by Roshi Egyoku — Thursday, December 17, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
