Silent Thunder Order Spring Precepts Sesshin
May 11 – 15, 2022
Please join STO and Mission Mountain Zen for a 5 day Spring Precepts Zen meditation retreat which is being offered both in-person and via Zoom. A Sesshin (literally, gathering/clarifying heart & mind), offers us time to intensify and mature our meditation practice. It affords a unique opportunity to clarify your life. The Sesshin will be led by Zen Priest Zenku Jerry Smyers. We will study the 16 Bodhisattva Precepts, (cultivating right zen practice) and their implications during the retreat Dharma Talks. While, we hope you can join for the entire Sesshin, the schedule is designed to permit you to partake in as much of the retreat as you can. Dokusan, private interviews with the teacher, will be offered. Suggested fee for in-person participation is $200, and for Zoom participation $100 for the entire sesshin or $30 per day. See the following retreat schedule, all times are Mountain Time.
