Upcoming retreats (sesshin)
I had been hoping to fly to WA to co-lead sesshin with Ross Bolleter Roshi again in September/October. The WA borders are closed so Ross will be running sesshin alone this year. I held an online Every Day Zen retreat from 14-23 May. This was held at weekends and during the evening so participants could continue with their Every Day life at the same time. Other events are held throughout the year. For more details visit the ZGWA website.
*Sesshin is the Japanese word for a zen retreat. It means to touch the heart mind and conveys the spirit of this practice which is not so much a retreat from our life, as it is engagement with it.
