Our November Daylong Intensive for 2020 begins November 14th at 5am utilizing our standard virtual KoSesshin schedule (see below). It will run to around 9pm offering a full day of practice. Take advantage of this opportunity to deepen your practice as we approach the end of the Autumn Training period.
For the Dharma Talks we will be reading from Torei Enji’s Discourse on the Inexhaustible Lamp of the Zen School translated by Yoko Okuda from Tuttle Publishing. Download a PDF of it here (note: links to a 43MB pdf). This has been the reading material for our Autumn Kessei and you can find notes and recordings of the previous discussions here: Discourse on the Inexhaustible Lamp.
You can download the sutra book that we will be using here: Virtual Sutra Book
The opening day of the sesshin is Friday October 16th at 5am. We request that everyone join all of our events a few minutes early so that you have time to start up the connection and settle in before things begin.
