Dai Bosatsu Kongo-ji
Traditional Silent Zen Sesshin
June 10-17, 2017

Dharma brothers and sisters join us. It is time.
Jun Po Roshi

We have entered a time of tremendous noise, politically, environmentally, and socially. It is more vital than ever for us, as practitioners, to cultivate our own relationship with the silence within, so we may respond intelligently and compassionately to all that is arising around us, and within us.

Silence is the heart of all spiritual practice and insight. Allow yourself a week to participate in a form exquisitely designed over millennia to enter into this silence. On this 7-day retreat, we will be enshrined in the beautiful surroundings of the historic Dai Bosatsu Monastery, set in the Catskill Mountain Preserve. Jun Po Roshi received inka (transmission) here in 1992, so our connection to this sacred place runs deep.

Jun Po Roshi, abbot of Mondo Zen, will lead this retreat. You will be nourished with daily Qi Gong and yoga, delicious vegetarian food, and a retreat container designed to allow you to discover and stabilize the realization of the profound silence within your heart.

This retreat sells out every year, so please don’t hesitate to sign up if you’d like to join us. More on Dai Bostatsu can be found through their website: Dai Bosatsu.
