→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: ZEN SESSHIN JULY 6-8 NAZERETH, PA.
vertical line Posted on Jun.06.2007 @ 02:43PM EDT by Joriki
Literally "to collect the mind" Sesshin is the Buddhist seclusion or retreat, consisting of three days of intensive Zazen (meditation) practice, with a dharma talk once a day and a private interview twice daily. During sesshin, the student concentrates on nothing but collecting the scattered mind so that they can realize their original unity with the universe from which he ordinarily feels separated from. For centuries philosophy and religion have tried to bring about this unification of mind, but without success. Zen will guide you there, as if you were returning to your long-lost home. In Zen meditation both heroic action and lifetime pleasure can be found. Weekend sesshin starts Friday at 7pm and ends on Sunday at 3pm.
For More Information please contact us at: Joriki@Bluemountainzendo.org or call 610-657-3160
Cost: $175.00 all inclusive w/private accommodations/vegetarian meals
