Sesshin 2017

5-day Zen sesshin retreat led by Daizan Skinner Roshi, exploring the practices of ‘mirror zen’.

For centuries, Zen teachers have taught using the image of a mirror. In pre-modern Japan at Tokeiji temple generations of female Zen masters developed specific practices in which actual mirror reflection was used as a powerful and rapid means of awakening spiritual insight. During this retreat we will be exploring both the mirror Zen teachings of the great female Zen masters of Tokeiji and the wider mirror-wisdom of Zen.

The retreat is suitable for those with an established sitting practice and a willingness to face themselves on all levels.
