Annual Seven Day Sesshin at Samish Island

June 12-20: Annual seven-day sesshin with the Red Cedar Zen Community in Bellingham, WA (an EDZ affiliate).

Every June we offer a full residential sesshin at the Community of Christ’s camp on beautiful Samish Island. Great Blue Herons fly overhead while swallows dance above the grass as we rise at 5am each day for sitting and walking meditation inside and outside, daily Dharma talks with our teacher, Zoketsu Norman Fischer, delicious vegetarian meals, simple outdoor work, and private interviews with Zoketsu and with the other local teachers. Additional activities, duration, and schedule vary each year, but this is always a wonderful opportunity to settle deeply into your practice and zen community.
