2-Day Sewing & Work Sesshin / Saturday

While this is a 'typical' sesshin timeline - like everything, subject to change - we do tend to stick closely to this schedule. If other commitments don't allow you to attend the full sesshin or even a full day, you're welcome to join us for any part(s) of a day 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.
