Our 7 Day Rohatsu Sesshin will be once more held on the stunning Quarantine Island in the Otago Harbour.
Sesshin will run from Friday Nov 29th through to Friday Dec 6th.
Rohatsu Sesshin is Buddhas Enlightenment Sesshin. You are warmly invited to join us and the many Rohatsu Sesshin being held around the world at this time, all from the vantage of a single cushion.
"We live our life and it passes, like flowing mist.
This moment, all lives right now as you.
But being tethered to feelings and sense of self we miss the actual,
Zen Sesshin is the time to let all be, and still without requirement.
To taste deeply what has always been on offer."
