Are things moving too quickly? Sometimes our own experiences and our own mind are moving too quickly. Everything we touch, taste, smell, hear and see is part of our mind. Also, what we hate, desire, fear, wish for, worry over, and more.
Rohatsu sesshin encourages us to slow down, and come to a complete stop. We can even drop what we think our Rohatsu will be, what we think we will get. We can stop trying and simply be. There is no other life than the one you are now. Now is the time. Only you can give yourself Rohatsu.
Rohatsu sesshin includes sitting and walking meditation, service, oryoki meals, dharma talks, rest, work practice, tea and private interviews with Teachers.
The character of Rohatsu is all seven days. Everyone is strongly encouraged to participate in the entire sesshin. If you register for less than the full seven days you must register for complete days, from 6:00am zazen to 8:40pm bow out.
Exceptions to complete day registration are available if you have a medical condition that requires you to be present less than the complete day.
After registration you will receive additional details about Rohatsu.
If you have questions, contact the sesshin leader, Tendo Stacy, 541-944-2682, email@example.com.
Cost for Rohatsu is $350, or $280 for pledging sangha. For those not attending the full sesshin this is $50/day, or $40/day for pledging sangha.
It is our tradition to express gratitude to the teacher through a dana offering. For this purpose a bowl will be out during Rohatsu for donations.
