Practice Period at Hokyoji
Led by Joen and Michael O’Neal and Hokyoji Guiding Teacher Dokai Georgesen, this practice period offers participants an opportunity to deepen their Zen practice in a variety of forms over the course of seven days.
A sesshin (literally, “to gather or collect the mind”) is a time when formal Zen practice is the focus of what we do. Sometimes these are called “retreats,” but we’re actually going forward into the heart of our lives.
The practice will include sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, study time, yoga and mindful movement, deep relaxation, vegetarian meals, work practice, and Dharma discussion. There will be opportunities for individual meetings with teachers.
Hokyoji has completed two new buildings—a Practitioners' Hall and guest house. This is a wonderful practice opportunity.
Fee includes lodging, meals, and program expenses.
We will also be offering an option for partial participation by Zoom, by donation
