The August Three-Day Sesshin at Green Gulch Farm offers an entry into intensive sesshin retreat practice for those new to it, and a chance for more experienced sitters to touch into the sesshin body/heart/mind.

Please review the example sesshin schedule. The sesshin will consist of sitting and walking meditation, Dharma Talks, and ceremonies, with light instruction as needed throughout. Meals will be eaten silently (we may or may not practice oryoki this sesshin).

Participants are welcome to arrive as early as 3:00 pm on Wednesday, and the sesshin will begin on Wednesday after dinner with a 7:00 pm orientation. The sesshin will conclude with lunch on Sunday.

This sesshin is open to anyone who has participated in an Introductory Half-Day Sitting at Green Gulch (or has comparable formal Zen experience) and previous participation in a One-Day Sitting at Green Gulch Farm is strongly recommended. If you have questions about your participation in this sitting, please contact the Ino, Head of the Meditation Hall, at

Before registering, please review the Health and Safety Requirements.

Registration is closed.

Once you have been approved for the sesshin, you will be sent an email that will include a link through which you can process your payment and complete your registration.
