Sesshin: Month’s End All-Day Sitting
Nov 25 @ 9:00 am – 9:00 pm

Morning Segment

Interview Protocol: Interviews with Sokuzan may begin in the morning. Please sign up on the whiteboard hanging in the kitchen. If you cannot stay for the entire sesshin and wish to have an interview, please note the time you will be leaving next to your name so arrangements can be made to accommodate your schedule.

Aside from the Morning Service, the morning segment will be Block Sitting. This means that there will be no gongs or scheduled walking meditation for this “block” of time. You may sit the entire period (not required) or, if you feel you need to, you can also do walking meditation on your own (slow kinhin style). Please feel free to use the restroom or get water or tea as needed and return to your cushion.
