at Camp Indianola, (10635 NE Shore Dr, Indianola, WA, 98342)
Sesshin, our Soto Zen form of intensive meditation retreat, offers us the chance to deeply investigate the true nature of this human life. We allow ourselves to be supported in this investigation by the forms of practice and the schedule of community life. Seattle Soto Zen will again host this residential sesshin at Camp Indianola. Our silent sesshin will include zazen, kinhin, service, Dharma talks, dokusan and oryoki meals. Oryoki instruction will be available. The Camp is situated on Puget Sound, across Agate Passage from the north end of Bainbridge Island. It offers beautiful views and the chance to walk on the beach during breaks. The zendo is a wonderful high-ceilinged space facing the water. We will be sleeping dormitory style in shared bedrooms. We have rented an additional building again this year to help with sleeping accommodations. Tent sites are also available. Please join us.
You may attend the weekend portion of the sesshin or the entire sesshin. The weekend portion runs from Friday, 7pm to Sunday, 5pm. Membership rate applies to members of Seattle Soto Zen and Red Cedar Zen Community.
To attend, you must have completed at least one full-day retreat or have permission from one of the teachers.
Registration will begin 90 days prior to the event.
