Zazenkai (All-Day Sitting)

Zazenkai provides one with the opportunity for intensifying and deepening one's practice through the experience of longer periods of uninterrupted zazen. Zazenkai are also a prerequisite for attending sesshin (meditation retreats). As such a period of extended sitting can be difficult, it is recommended that you attend at least two regular sittings before signing up for one. The Center holds several zazenkai per year, which are open to members and other qualified persons.
