Dharma Talk January 24, 2023: Yoshin and Sesshin

Please join us (1/24/23 at 7:00 PM/ET) as Yoshin Amy Wilson, shares her experiences of various sesshins from a hermitage-like experience on an island during the summer of 2022, our fall Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha three-day retreat, and Rohatsu at her home in December. She also recently completed a sesshin in the mountains of upstate New York.

No Beginning, No End

Experience with Sesshin

What happens when we sit still enough, long enough?

The internet creates wonderful opportunities for practice, and for some of us, the virtual experience of sesshin from our home environments can also have inherent challenges that differ from practice in the zendo. I’m interested in exploring formal Zen practice and ritual and what happens during extended sitting; sangha makes this exploration possible to sustain. Last month, as a guest of a local Zen center, I experienced three days of in-person retreat during Rohatsu, during which so many informative teachings and tales from our Sensei came to life…Gassho Yoshin

I look forward to Yoshin’s talk and all of you having a chance to ask her questions.
