Senzaki Sesshin/Jukai

May 5 @ 4:00 pm - May 10 @ 1:00 pm

Please join us as we honor Nyogen Senzaki, a great early pioneer of Zen in America, in this sesshin led by Shinge Roshi amid the glory of spring. A disciple of Soen Shaku Roshi, Nyogen Senzaki came to the United States in 1905. He practiced alone at first, then was gradually sought out by Americans eager to learn about and practice Zen. His teachings and poems continue to inspire us decades after his passing. Shinge Roshi will hold Jukai (precepts ceremony) for her students on the final day of sesshin. This will be a beautiful time to practice at DBZ, as the mountain warms and blooms.

The fee is $315 for members, $350 for non-members.  Reduced fees may be  available to students who would otherwise be unable to attend.  Transportation may be available from New York Zendo.  If you would like to discuss these possibilities or have any question, or if this will be your first sesshin at DBZ, before you register, call 845-439-4566, or email office@daibosatsu.org
