Retreat and Event Dates

Autumn Sesshin with Keizan Roshi, Shinro Sensei and Suigen Sensei

Sunday 24th October (6pm) to Saturday 30th October (10am) at Crosby Hall near Liverpool

After a long break due to the pandemic, we are returning to Crosby Hall for our traditional Autumn Sesshin. It will be the first time in two years that the whole sangha has been been able to meet and sit and practice together in one place. As well this will be the first ‘live’ retreat to include Keizan Roshi together with Shinro Sensei and Suigen Sensei.

The Sesshin is a great opportunity to deepen your own practice, to enrich the sangha and, as well, to perhaps take time out to consider and evaluate the meaning for you, for those close to you and the wider world, of these past and ongoing challenging times.

This will be a traditional zen training sesshin with extended periods of sitting and walking meditation, private interviews with teachers and dharma talks.

All meals will be vegetarian. If you have specific dietary needs please mention this when booking. The venue is the CHET centre in the grounds of Crosby Hall, L23 4UA. The owner has given permission to walk in the grounds and there are interesting walks in the surrounding coutryside which is also close to the sea.

Arrival from 2pm, Sunday, 24th for a 6pm start.

COST: £320 ( This will cover the basic cost of hiring the venue but additional donations are always welcome.)

A non refundable deposit of £75 is needed at the time of booking to secure your place. Priority will be given to folks who have already expressed an interest and to those booking for the whole week.
