This is an extended, silent retreat usually lasting from 3 to 9 days. Literally meaning “to unify the mind,” sesshin is when we set aside the regular Center schedule and devote ourselves to continuous samadhi practice. Each day several blocks of zazen are integrated with walking meditation, face-to-face meetings with Roshi Egyoku and other teachers, mindful work practice, chanting, oryoki meals, dharma talks and rest periods. Here is a sample sesshin schedule.
