Once again, we return to Jikoji Zen Center in the Santa Cruz Mountains for our 10th Annual Sesshin.

Our teacher Angie Boissevain, Zuiko Enji, will sit with us all week and offer a Dharma talk after tea each afternoon. Dokusan will be offered in the morning Monday through Thursday. Carolyn Dille and Paula Jones will complete their priest ordinations with Angie this August sesshin.
