WEBZ Sesshin

August 20, 2019 - August 25, 2019

Portland Buddhist Festival
Term Student Opening Retreat

Annual “WEBZ” Sesshin with Wy’East Zen Center (WE) and Bright Way Zen (BZ)
Tues. evening, August 20th – Sun. morning, August 25th, 2019
(Arrive Tues, Wed, Thurs, or Fri)

Sesshin is a silent, residential meditation retreat. Attending sesshin is an extremely valuable way to deepen your zazen and build connections with Sangha; there’s a million excuses not to attend sesshin, but it’s always profoundly rewarding – commit to attending now and then plan your life around this retreat.

This will be our third annual “WEBZ” sesshin, a collaborative effort between Wy’East Zen center (WE) and Bright Way Zen (BZ). It will be held at beautiful Camp Yamhill. You can arrive Tues, Wed, Thurs, or Fri and then stay until the end.
