Year End Sesshin with Roshi Enkyo O’Hara and Village Zendo Teachers

The Garrison Institute
Garrison, New York

Full Retreat: Tuesday, December 26 to Monday, January 1st
Half Retreat: Tuesday, December 26 to Friday, December 29

Part of our Winter Ango 2017-2018.

The Village Zendo’s year-end retreat is the perfect time for quiet meditation and deep silence. Our schedule is serious (with plenty of zazen) but also spacious (with unstructured time in the afternoon for rest, outdoor walks or body practice). There are dharma talks every day, and ample opportunity to meet with our teachers. Delicious vegetarian meals are offered buffet-style. If you have put off doing a residential retreat, or felt intimidated to try one, this is a wonderful retreat to attend. Come and join the Village Zendo sangha as we greet the new year with clear minds and open hearts.
