Soji’s Summer Sesshin

June 23-28, 2023 | St. Raphaela Center
616 Coopertown Road, Haverford, PA 19041

“Continuous practice that actualizes itself is no other than your continuous practice right now.”

Our study text will be from the book Enlightenment Unfolds: The Essential Teachings of Master Dogen, edited by Kazuaki Tanahashi. In the midst of our full schedules, busy minds and coming and going, sesshin offers a unique opportunity to settle into a space of continuous practice. With a carefully planned schedule of zazen, work practice, silent meals and individual study, every part of the day is a facet of continuous practice.

The sesshin will begin on Friday, June 23, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. at St. Raphaela Center and end on Wednesday, June 28, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. There are 3 ways to attend the retreat:

A) Full Retreat (6/23-28)
B) Partial Retreat (6/23-26)
C) Partial Retreat (6/25-6/28)
