Fall Sesshin (online)

Sesshin, our Soto Zen form of intensive meditation retreat, offers us the chance to deeply investigate the true nature of this human life. While Covid-19 is keeping us online-only, we will offer the traditional practices of zazen, kinhin, service, Dharma talks and dokusan. The leading teachers for this year’s sesshin are Kanshin Allison Tait (Seattle Soto Zen) and Shudo Chris Burkhart (Red Cedar Zen). Please join us – you may attend the weekend portion of the sesshin, or attend the entire sesshin.

Fall Sesshin will begin with an evening zazen session from 7:00–8:15 pm on Friday, September 17. On Sunday through Tuesday, sessions will be held from 9:00–4:00, with optional early morning (7:00–8:30) and evening (6:15–7:30) zazen. There will be a daily dharma talk, and a break for lunch from 12:00–2:00. The sesshin ends at noon on Wednesday.

The detailed schedule and other info will be sent out shortly to registered participants.

Seattle Soto Zen keeps the fees as low as possible to cover the cost of the event. Some scholarship funds are available. Email registrar@seattlesotozen.org for information. Teacher dana is appreciated, and a donation can be made via the website under “Ways to Give” – please note “teacher dana for Allison Tait” or “teacher dana for Chris Burkhart” as your intention on the donation form.
