Sesshin

Our ancestor, Dogen Zenji, was a great advocate for seated meditation, zazen. He considered zazen not only to be a method of moving toward enlightenment, but also, the activity of enlightenment itself.  Friday evening and Saturday morning May 1 & 2, we will have the opportunity to do just that. You might like to have your chant book nearby. We will be meeting on Zoom.
