SESSHIN: CONTINUOUS PRACTICE RETREAT
"Continuous practice, day after day is the most appropriate way of expressing gratitude" - Dogan
Come join us for our Continuous Practice Retreat at Empty Bowl Zen Community on Friday, Sept 29 from 9am-5pm and Saturday, Sept 30 from 9am-5pm. Continuous practice is the practice of how we live our life. How do we respond to a difficult relationship or situation? How do we do this practice? How do we not live a life of suffering? In the time we will have together, we will look deeply at the koans which are our life.
There will be plenty of zazen as well as dharma talks and private interviews, plus time to reflect and integrate practice into our daily life. Please bring a snack to share. For lunch, please bring your own or eat out. It is required that those registering for the Sesshin commit to both days. The Registration fee is $40. Please register by Tuesday, Sept 26.
