Sunrise over Camel's Hump

The June 3-day Sesshin is going to happen—we just aren't sure what form it will take. Keep reading for more information.


Starts: Thursday, 6/24 at 7:00 p.m.
Ends: Sunday, 6/27 at approx 1:00 p.m.

Application Deadline: June 10, 2021

Under Consideration:

  • We are looking at the possibility of having a hybrid sesshin with some Zoom participants, others staying and sitting at the Center, and others not staying at the Center but sitting there.
  • There are 24 bedrooms, with 5 of them occupied by the house residents and Roshi. That leaves 19 rooms for sesshin participants with single-person occupancy.
  • If someone wanted to stay at the Center they would need to have been fully vaccinated and live more than 15 minutes away. Preference would likely be given to senior members from out of state as well as local senior members who live at a distance.
  • Anyone who stayed at the Center would need to be available for meal preparation. There would be a surcharge to cover food.
  • There could be as many as 35 people sitting at the Center. Those who were not staying there would go home for meals and sleeping. They would need to live within 10-15 minutes of the Center and be fully vaccinated.
  • As all this implies changes to the application, the schedule, and the sesshin routine, we will need to consider this carefully as June approaches. Therefore, the application will not be immediately available. Please check back at the start of June for more information.
