Zazenkai are short retreats held without the presence of a teacher. At Burning House, they are usually weekend-long, except for Rohatsu, which also includes sitting during the week. They are good opportunities for deepening our practice together without requiring the time commitment of a full sesshin.
Zazenkai were scheduled for 2008 on:
- March 29-30
- June (Burning House Anniversary Celebration): Canceled
- September 20-21
- November 29 – December 7 (Rohatsu): Canceled
This year brought serious health problems to the families of four sangha members, and we weren’t able to carry out all of our plans for sharing zazenkai together. Our hearts go with everyone caring for loved ones at home, and we hope the new year will find us all happy and healthy and sitting together again.
