Rohatsu Sesshin with Great Vow Zen Monastery

Bright Way Zen does not hold its own Rohatsu sesshin at this time, but members are strongly encouraged to participate with another Sangha. Rohatsu is the deepest, quietest sesshin of the year, and it’s practiced by Zen communities all over the world in early December. Domyo attends the sesshin at Great Vow; to join her, find more information by clicking here.

Saturday, December 16th ~ 8:30am-4pm Pacific Time
