Rohatsu Sesshin In Progress - Dec. 1-8, 2012

Rohatsu Sesshin Opening Ceremony
After a week of intensive outdoor activity with the new Monk House construction, we now switch gears to a week of intensive indoor sitting.  Rohatsu Sesshin is an 8 day sesshin ending on December 8th - it is a time of concentrated practice to commemorate Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment upon seeing the morning star.  Sesshin is now in day 5.  There are daily dharma talks by Rev. Taihaku Priest on the subject of Buddha's Enlightenment.
