7-Day Buddhayana Sesshin

Saturday May 28  —  Friday June 3, 2022

“To study the self is to forget the self. 
To forget the self is to be actualized by the myriad things.”
-- Dogen Zenji (1200-1253)

This sesshin focusing on the Buddhayana Zen Path, the non-dual understanding of the Supreme Way, is a required part of the year-long study of the Buddhayana in the Four-Year Four Yana Program (either in-person or via Zoom), and is included as one of the scheduled events in the One-Year Big Mind Zen Program as well.  It is also open to all other interested persons, at rates depending on their membership status.

This will be our long-awaited first major in-person event since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.  It will also be a 'hybrid' event live on Zoom, for those who cannot attend in person. 

(Registered participants in the Four-Year Four Yana Program and the One-Year Big Mind Zen Program do not have to register here.  They will automatically receive the link to the Instruction page with Zoom links for the morning and afternoon sessions of the Retreat.)

Location:  The sesshin will be held in Salt Lake City at the Wasatch Conference Center of the 'ECC' (the Episcopal Church Center) in the heart of the city, where many Kanzeon/Big Mind events have been held in the past.  Address: 200 East 75 South, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84111.
