Event Description:

Rohatsu Sesshin (“Morning star retreat”) is the most important retreat of the year. It marks and celebrates Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment and marks the end of the Autumn Ango (practice period). It is a very powerful and deep gathering of individuals dedicated to realizing and expressing the Buddha Way through deep silence, extended periods of sitting and walking meditation, shared meals, liturgy, and work activities.

Seiso Paul Cooper, Sensei, and senior sangha members from the Two Rivers Zen Community will lead Dharma talks and Q&A discussions. Seiso Sensei will also be available to provide private practice interviews. Rohatsu Sesshin, considered to be the strongest retreat of the year, functions as a powerful container that supports integration of body and mind, our individuality, and oneness with our community and the world. We invite you to strengthen, deepen and honor your practice by joining us for this year’s Rohatsu Sesshin.

Full or part-time participation available.
