Winter Training Schedule

Dear friends,

Here is our Winter Seichu training schedule!

Please consider joining us for a retreat this winter, or for some portion of our formal Zen training. Winter Seichu is a great opportunity to deepen your practice in an intense but supportive monastic environment. Our weeklong sesshin retreats include Zazen sitting practice, chanting, dharma talks, optional osho interviews, recorded teachings from Joshu Sasaki Roshi, and the opportunity to sink down into the profound, shared silence that group practice affords.

To reserve a space for any of our retreats, email us back, call 909-985-6410, or send a note via carrier pigeon.
