2-Day Sewing & Work Sesshin / Saturday

While this is a 'typical' timeline for our 2-Day Sewing & Work Sesshin - like everything, it is subject to change. We do tend to stick to this schedule. If other commitments don't allow you to attend the full sesshin or even a full day, and/or you didn't have a chance to register before registration closed (typically 18 hours before the start of sesshin), you're welcome to join us for any part(s) of either or both days that you can. We only ask that you enter and leave the retreat as quietly as possible, so as not to disturb the silence being observed.
