Hills & Streams Backpacking Sesshin

BZC’s 20s and 30s Dharma Group is happy to announce it will be hosting its fifth annual “Hills and Streams” backpack­ing sesshin. The sesshin will be held Friday, April 12, through Sunday, April 14, with a mandatory orienta­tion meeting on Tuesday, April 9. The sesshin will take place at Sky Camp in Point Reyes National Seashore. Sign-ups and cancel­lation deadlines are Sunday, March 31.

This is an intensive meditation retreat which will involve significant hiking and will maintain (to the extent possible) a sesshin atmosphere and practice. This includes long periods of silence, sitting zazen, and shared responsibilities (cooking, cleaning, etc.). If you are new to backpacking or to sesshins, please contact the directors, Kelsey Hosei Hermann and Chris Frost: backpacksesshin@gmail.com.

This sesshin is a wonderful way to connect with other young sangha members and to experience practice in the wilderness. If you are interested in attending, please fill out an application at https://bit.ly/2TJdbpW or email the directors. We hope to see many old and new faces there!
