We are announcing and inviting you to join us at our upcoming STO May Precepts Sesshin that will be hosted at the Mission Mountain Zen Center in Dayton Montana from May 3 to 7.
Attendance for this 5-day will be both via Zoom and in-person. During this meditation retreat we will focus on deepening our Zen practice and our understanding of the 16 Bodhisattva Precepts through daily dharma talks and Zazen practice. We will look at the relevance and importance of the Precepts in our daily lives and how the Bodhisattva Precepts are at the heart of our moment-to-moment efforts to awaken to our true nature and help all beings.
Please register and join us in supporting each other in affirming our commitment to deepen our Zazen practice. The sesshin will begin on Wednesday evening, 5/3 at 6pm MDT and conclude on Sunday at noon on 5/7. We will have daily Dharma Talks, on “Actualizing the Precepts”. Dharma Teachers will include Kanzan Slattery Sensei, Zenku Sensei, and Taiun Elliston Roshi. Everyone is welcome for any or all of the retreat.
