Sesshin with Dan Dorsey Roshi

  • Zen Desert Sangha 3226 N Martin Ave Tucson, AZ, 85719 United States (map)

For the first time in many years, ZDS will offer a weekend-long sesshin at the zendo.

This extended practice period will run from dinner at 6 pm on Friday evening 10/3 through noon on Sunday 10/5. Participants can either return home to sleep or make arrangements to "camp out" at the zendo. All meals will be provided, with a special simplified oryoki dinner in the zendo on Saturday evening.

For those unable to attend the entire weekend, briefer "zazenkai style" participation from 6 am - 3 pm on Saturday can be elected.

he cost for the full sesshin is $85 for ZDS members/$95 for non-members; to attend only on Saturday from 6-3, the cost is $40 for members/$45 for non-members. For questions or to reserve a space, send an email to zds@zendesertsangha.org or call Joann Schultz at 520-490-9474.

We are respectful of the fact that this sesshin overlaps the Jewish holyday of Yom Kippur. For those who wish to participate in both, accommodation for observances can be made. Contact Dan to discuss at 520-624-8030 or dorsey@dakotacom.net
