Wy’East & Bright Way Zen (WEBZ) Annual Sesshin
August 23 @ 4:00 pm - August 28 @ 5:00 pm
Annual “WEBZ” Sesshin with Wy’East Zen Center (WE) and Bright Way Zen (BZ)
Mon. evening, August 23rd – Sat. evening, August 28th, 2021
(Arrive Tues, Wed, Thurs, or Fri)
PLEASE NOTE: This sesshin may or may not happen depending on COVID-19 activity in the community as the time approaches, and what we can pull of partial occupancy, social distancing, etc. Stay tuned for updates, as this sesshin may be cancelled or adapted. We should decide by mid-May.
Sesshin is a silent, residential meditation retreat. Attending sesshin is an extremely valuable way to deepen your zazen and build connections with Sangha. Click here to read more about sesshin.
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 fourth annual “WEBZ” sesshin, a collaborative effort between Wy’East Zen center (WE) and Bright Way Zen (BZ). It will be held at beautiful Hull Park & Lodge near Sandy, Oregon. You can arrive Tues, Wed, Thurs, or Fri and then stay until the end.
Stay tuned for more details, but save the dates now! Cost for the sesshin will be somewhat higher than last year because Hull Park and Lodge is much more accommodating and appropriate facility (a commercial kitchen and comfortable dorm rooms with double occupancy, among other things); it will be $325 for the entire sesshin (for BWZ or Wy’East members, and less for partial attendance – more info later). However, as usual, no one will be turned away for lack of funds, so please join us.
