            Sensei is offering this weekend sesshin for practitioners from his temple in Oceanside and for BSPG practitioners who would like to join. Sesshin will begin with dinner on Friday evening and go through lunch on Sunday. There will be a short sitting on Friday night and a brief talk by Sensei on how to sit sesshin most effectively. Sensei will give two talks, one each on Saturday and Sunday. We will also celebrate the morning liturgy. Sesshin is an opportunity to go to private interviews more than once.

PLEASE REGISTER EARLY! Space in the Friary is limited to 16 retreatants only.
