In lieu of Bhikkhu Bodhi’s teaching retreat, we will be holding a one-day Meditation Intensive Retreat to deepen our practice without interruption and distraction. Traditionally in the Chán and Zen traditions, periods of time are set aside for intensive practice, usually between 3 and 10 days long. This period is called a 攝心 shèxīn in Chinese, sesshin in Japanese. The characters mean ‘to gather the heart and mind,’ and has the further meaning of focusing and embracing the mind.

A Noble Silence retreat, we will practice the four postures meditation (sitting, standing, walking, and lying down). Participants should have some meditation experience to attend.
