Please note: Attending Osesshin is a commitment to full time participation. Kosesshin allows for less than full time participation. In order for kosesshin to run smoothly, we request that you provide your arrival and departure dates and approximate times, and keep us updated of changes. Temple housing is limited and we appreciate your flexibility. Any help with set up before or clean up following sesshin will be greatly appreciated. There may be a wait-list for any segment of this month of practice. People on the wait-list will be contacted immediately as spaces become available.
