DBZ Anniversary Online Intensive

July 3, 2020 @ 5:00 am - July 4, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Please join us for a Two-Day Online Intensive to celebrate Dai Bosatsu Zendo’s 44th Anniversary, 5 a.m. Friday, July 3, to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 4.

We would like to invite you to participate in a two-day online practice intensive to honor the 44th anniversary of International Dai Bosatsu Zendo’s formal opening on July 4, 1976, the Bicentennial of the United States. While in-person sesshin is not possible due to the coronavirus, let us gather from all over the world, sitting together with all our might to requite the beneficence of the great teachers whose endless vow brought Dai Bosatsu Zendo into being.

We will begin on Friday, July 3rd, at 5 a.m., and the intensive will run through 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 4th.

The retreat will include zazen and morning service, teisho, a Dharma talk, and dokusan and Dharma interviews by Shinge Roshi, Dokurō Oshō, and Hokuto Sensei. Off-line time will be built into the schedule to allow for meals, work practice at your home, and kinhin.

Everyone who registers will receive a schedule with Zoom links. While we encourage full-time participation, you may join us for as much as you can.

Suggested Contribution: $75-$150

We know that some people are struggling financially, and we want to make these offerings available to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. If you can afford more, please consider giving at a higher level to help others. Your support is so important at this time, when we have no income from our usual in-person programming. Please help us continue our work on behalf of all beings.
