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.

Jikoji Zen Center was established in 1983 by Kobun Chino Otogawa and a group of his students. Angie is one of these founding students. Situated in a wooded area, surrounded by Open Space Preserve, Jikoji offers a quiet, rustic environment for meditation practice. Improvements in recent years add to the comfort, accessibility, and beauty of the Center. More information about Jikoji, including directions, is available at jikoji.org.

Our Sesshin is open to all, for the whole week or any part of the week. The retreat and accommodation fees are as follows:

All 7 days & nights: $355
Per day: $35
Per night: $52

Donations for our teacher are extra and are up to each participant. Some scholarships, up to 50% of the full rate, are available.

If you would like to join us, please contact the sesshin shika Britt Walsh by email at shika@brittwalsh.com or by phone at 650-282-3459. To hold a place in the sesshin, a $100 deposit is required, payable by check to “Floating Zendo” or via PayPal: click the PayPal “Donate” button at the bottom of the Donations page.
