Mountains and Rivers Sesshin
July 27, 2017
Our annual Mountains and Rivers Sesshin will
take place Thursday through Sunday, July 27‒
30, at Point Reyes.
Seiwa Leslie Bartholic will be joining us as
the doshi. She will be leading our daily
discussions of Dogen’s “Mountains and Rivers
Sutra,” and will also be available for one-onone
practice discussion during our free-time
periods on Friday and Saturday afternoons.
The sesshin will begin with an orientation
meeting Wednesday evening, July 26, at 6 p.m.
in the Community Room. Thursday morning
we will carpool to Point Reyes, then hike from
the Bear Valley Visitors’ Center to Coast Camp,
moving at a moderate pace with frequent rest
stops and lunch along the way. We will get
back to Berkeley around 5 p.m. Sunday. All
meals are provided and camping experience is
not required. Everyone is encouraged to do the
full four days, but provision will also be made
for those who may have to arrive late.
The sign-up sheet will be posted on the
BZC bulletin board as of July 7. Your spot will
be reserved after you submit all the logistical
information requested on the sign-up sheet.
Sign-up deadline is Thursday, July 20. The fee
is $75. If you have any questions, please
contact Zosie Calame at email@example.com.
