Sesshin (7-Day Meditation Retreat)

Three Treasures Sangha typically holds two, seven-day sesshin each year.

  • Non-Residential Sesshin with Lee Shields, In Person and Zoom, March 30-April 6. 2024

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). Online and part time attendance are welcome.

If you have no prior sesshin experience, feel free to contact us to learn more.

Shorter zazenkais are held at Dharma Gate throughout the year to balance the longer and more strenuous spring and fall sesshins.
