  On one occasion, the Buddha said to the monks this:
"No other form do I know, O monks, that so persists in obsessing the mind of a man as the form of a woman.

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: SESSHIN IN PA.
vertical line Posted on Nov.06.2007 @ 06:41PM EDT by Joriki
Winter Sesshin Dec. 14-17 2007 Nazareth, Pa.
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

Naah, apps&prros not think to expensive. Not much money in Buddhism and it`s loosing everything dogmas and such forth, would rather go for the church of Scientology, or the neon Christian right.

Found this on the sects web site;
Sesshin fees include private room, meals and all events
