Broken Raven Sesshin – September 7-14, 2019

Posted by on Aug 14, 2019 in Meditation Retreat | Comments Off on Broken Raven Sesshin – September 7-14, 2019

Three Treasures Sangha holds two, seven-day sesshins each year at Mountain Lamp, a rural practice center near Bellingham, Washington. These retreats are rigorous and quite demanding, consisting of about 10 hours of zazen (sitting meditation) per day. They are silent except for the teacher’s daily teisho (dharma talk), and for dokusan (practice-related interview with the teacher).

In-City Supported Personal Retreat (July 12-14, 2019)

With Madelon Bolling and Lee Shields Many of us have regimented lives, with infrequent opportunities to ask, with an open mind, how we might deepen practice. Traditionally, Zen training included disciplined training periods alternating with periods of greater free time or travel, even as the spirit and dedication of practice continued.
