November Sesshin – Generosity
November 6 - 12, 2023
Monday 5pm to Sunday 1pm
With gratitude for our beloved sangha near and far, in person and on zoom, the Monastery joyfully offers another sesshin. This sesshin has no set price. All are welcome to attend, and donations from the heart are welcome.
During this week of practice, we will eat only the offerings brought to us specifically for this retreat. So food donations, while always welcome, are particularly helpful! Bring food that you like to eat, bring food that will challenge our kitchen team and cook. The head cook (tenzo) will need to dive into creativity and allow the surprises of each donation manifest our meals.
We will otherwise follow the usual sesshin schedule, early to bed and early to rise, with a full day of practice in between!
In order to attend in person, we require that you first attend one of our Beginner’s Mind Weekend retreats or a five-seven day silent retreat at another Zen Center before registering for our longer zen retreats. For more information about what to expect when attending a sesshin, click here.
Proof of vaccination and booster is required to attend events at Great Vow Zen Monastery. For the latest on our health policies click here. Our Covid policy is changing fast. please stay tuned for any updated information
