Traditional sesshins are held at Great Tree usually during the first week of each month, save for August and September. Both men and women may attend.
Sesshins run from 2 nights to 5 nights. All participants are expected to participate in the semi-monastic schedule which includes several periods of sitting and walking meditation, daily work periods, kitchen duty and oryoki style meals. With the teacher’s permission you may attend a partial sesshin, however, those unfamiliar with Great Tree’s practice are required to attend the first night of the sesshin for orientation.
