January Weekend Sesshin

Friday, Jan. 28, 7:00 P.M.–Sunday, Jan. 30, 11:15 A.M.

Due to the COVID situation, this sesshin will be held entirely on Zoom.

The schedule has been slightly modified from that of an in-person sesshin to support people participating from home on Zoom. 

This sesshin will be led by Michael & Joen O'Neal and will include sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, chanting services, and an opportunity to meet with a teacher.

This sesshin is a wonderful opportunity to strengthen and deepen the practice of whole-hearted engagement, supporting and being supported by one another. Having held our Rohatsu sesshin via Zoom in December, we are confident that the remote format provides a meaningful experience.


Pre-registration is required. The deadline to register is Thursday, January 27.

Fee: $50 ($45 members)

To register online, enter the appropriate amount under Program Fees: Retreats on the online form. If you wish to pay by check, please let us know.

The Zoom meeting information and chants will be emailed to participants by noon on Friday, January 28.

If you have any questions, please email or call 612-781-7640.
