7-Day Buddhayana Sesshin
Saturday May 28 — Friday June 3, 2022
“To study the self is to forget the self.
This sesshin focusing on the Buddhayana Zen Path, the non-dual understanding of the Supreme Way, is a required part of the year-long study of the Buddhayana in the Four-Year Four Yana Program (either in-person or via Zoom), and is included as one of the scheduled events in the One-Year Big Mind Zen Program as well. It is also open to all other interested persons, at rates depending on their membership status.
This will be our long-awaited first major in-person event since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. It will also be a 'hybrid' event live on Zoom, for those who cannot attend in person.
(Registered participants in the Four-Year Four Yana Program and the One-Year Big Mind Zen Program do not have to register here. They will automatically receive the link to the Instruction page with Zoom links for the morning and afternoon sessions of the Retreat.)
NOTE: Previous Covid restrictions at the Conference Center have been lifted, so in-person participation is now open to 30 more people. All attendees are requested to take a Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Test (Self Test At Home) and receive a negative result within 24 hours of May 28. These tests can be ordered from Amazon or obtained at local grocery stores. For those traveling by plane from outside the US, a negative test within 24 hours is required prior to travel. If you have difficulty finding a test kit please let us know.
Location: The sesshin will be held in Salt Lake City at the Wasatch Conference Center of the 'ECC' (the Episcopal Church Center) in the heart of the city, where many Kanzeon/Big Mind events have been held in the past. Address: 200 East 75 South, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84111.
The ECC offers convenient and economical lodging in the center itself, but guest room spaces are limited, so see the details about reservations and covid restrictions below.
Only 2 guest rooms remain available. Lodging does not include meals, but lodgers have access to a complete kitchen and dining room. (There are also supermarkets and various shops and restaurants close to the ECC.)
Many other lodging options are available within walking distance in the downtown area.
