Wholehearted Sesshin: Summer Silent Retreat at Garrison Institute
Wednesday, August 2nd - Wednesday, August 9th, 2023
with Chodo Robert Campbell, Koshin Paley Ellison, and Dorothy Dai En Friedman
Join us for an eight-day intensive silent 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 culminates with the Jukai Ceremony where students receive the precepts and take their Bodhisattva Vows.
