Weekly Zazen by Zoom Only

Zazenkai and Sesshin

Zazenkai are usually one- to three-day meditation retreats, held monthly at Dharma Gate. Sesshin are longer retreats—usually seven days—that include sitting and walking meditation, chanting, talks by the teacher, and 1:1 student-teacher meetings to talk about practice. Sesshin are currently non-residential, held at our city center in Seattle, Washington. We will likely hold residential sesshin in the near future.
