One-Day Sesshin

Sojun Mel Weitsman will lead a one-day sesshin on Saturday August 15, from 5:00 am –9:00 pm. We encourage old and new sangha members to participate. Please sign up on the patio bulletin board by Wednesday morning August 12, after zazen. If this is your first sesshin at BZC, we recommend that you first participate in a full Saturday program and also speak with the sesshin director. The fee is $35 and should be paid in advance (a discounted fee is possible for those in need; please speak to the director). Leave checks marked “August sesshin” in the mail slot in the courtyard laundry room door or mail to the BZC office manager at 1931 Russell St., Berkeley, 94703.

If you are attending for the first time, you will need to fill out a sesshin information sheet to let us know of health problems, food allergies, or physical problems requiring accommodation. Info sheets are available under the patio bulletin board or from the sesshin director, Gerry Oliva ( or (510) 652-7217.
