Wholehearted Sesshin: Summer Silent Retreat at Garrison Institute

Wednesday, August 3rd - Wednesday, August 10th, 2022

Wholehearted Sesshin: Summer Silent Retreat at Garrison Institute in Garrison, NY

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


Join us for an eight-day intensive retreat focusing on rediscovering our values and living life to the fullest.


We each have an enormous capacity for love — a deep well from which we can draw compassion and support for ourselves and for others. Teachings on the Precepts are both simple and transformative and are an invitation to close the gaps we create between ourselves and others — to wholeheartedly wake up to ourselves and to the world around us.


Noble Silence is observed throughout the daily schedule of sitting and walking meditation, chanting, dharma talks, personal interview with a teacher, and body practice.


Summer Sesshin will culminate with our first Shuso Hossen ceremony, celebrating our Shuso offering their first dharma talk and serving the sangha going forward as a Senior Student.
