Dates for 2023 Sesshin

Mark your calendars! GBZC will offer 3-day residential retreats April 20-23 and October 6-9 and a week-long residential retreat July 14-21 during 2023. We will also offer a December Rohatsu retreat, but have not yet set the dates or location.

We are also changing our venue! The Retreats Working Group has determined that the facilities offered for rent by the Providence Zen Center in Cumberland RI are more suited to our needs than those at Mercy by the Sea (the site of our recent and upcoming December 2022 sesshin). The location is more convenient for many of us, a zendo is already set up, and we may cook for ourselves. While there is no beach, the site is lovely and peaceful. 

Attendance at sesshin is a powerful way to deepen one’s practice. You will see reminders about upcoming retreats in this Newsletter, and registration for each will open approximately eight weeks in advance.
