Winter Sesshin: January 8-14, 2018

 

Sesshin is the Japanese word for a period of intensive training in Zen, sometimes for three days, sometimes for six. We hold four sesshin each year, following many of the traditional forms that have evolved over many centuries to foster the efficiency of your efforts. Contact Gordon Greene for more information.

 

Past Events

Kickstarter: Wood-Fired Ceramics Kiln

Wood-fired ceramics have been a part of our lineage of Zen training for almost fifty years. Our dojo in Spring Green is surrounded by eighty acres of hardwood trees, so we have the space and the firewood for several firings each year. The creation and firing of ceramics is considered an intense pathway into Zen training with a number of benefits.

This Kickstarter Campaign helped us raise $15,436. Thank you to all of our generous donors!

On Oct. 29 from 7-8:30 pm our three Rinzai Zen roshis, Greene Roshi, Kushner Roshi, and Whitelaw Roshi appeared LIVE in person together at First Unitarian Society in Madison.
