Beginner’s Mind Online Sesshin: A Winter Silent Retreat of Wholehearted Practice

Beginner’s Mind Online Sesshin: A Winter Silent Retreat of Wholehearted Practice

 

with Sensei Chodo, Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison, Sensei Dorothy Dai-En Friedman and Sensei Jose Shinzan Palma

 

Wednesday, January 13th – Sunday, January 17th, 2021

 

A cornerstone of Zen practice, the Japanese word for “sesshin” means “touching the heart-mind.”

 

This is a rare opportunity for deepening our practice with a community of supportive practitioners. Our time together will highlight the teachings of the Wholehearted Way as we consider intimacy always within reach and the joy of living out the fresh reality of life.

 

Through sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, and dokusan (one on one meetings) with the Teachers, enter into Noble Silence as we practice together, right here, right now.

 

It is recommended that participants attend the entire retreat but we understand that people may have to occasionally step away from the retreat. With this in mind, we do allow partial participation although no discounts or reimbursements will be given for missed days.
