The Zen group sponsors two retreats (sesshins) each year, spring and fall, with Roshi Daniel Terragno.

Spring “Commuter” Sesshin

          just as it is, 
                     as it is, 
                             as is. 
                                        Flowers in bloom. 
                                         Nothing to add.

Saturday (1:30pm) Mar. 28, 2020

at the Yellow Springs Dharma Center

Registration form here.

Sesshin (the Japanese word literally means “to touch the heart-mind”) is an opportunity to draw from the tremendous strength of people practicing together, to receive personal guidance in private meetings with the teacher, and to experience the deep stillness that lies within each of us. The sesshin can become an inspiring spiritual experience for anyone, irrespective of previous experience or religious affiliation.
