The Sun Mountain Zen Flexi-sesshin is held each year in January just following Christmas New Year public holidays.

While maximum participation in any sesshin is to be encouraged, the usual requirement for full attendance at sesshin is waived in favour of flexibility of attendance so the meditation periods may be integrated with the normal activities of the week including work and family events.

Morning and evening sitting occur daily. Some days will have a typical sesshin format for those who are able to attend; for others, attendance in modules according to your personal needs is available. Do please respect others need to sit and only enter the zendo during kin-hin.  As usual, you are welcome to sleep over!

Flexi-sesshin offers a time for intensive practice and daily access to your teacher for regular dokusan.   Invigorating Zen practice is an excellent way to begin the New Year.

  • starts on Sunday the 21st of January at 5pm and
  • finishes on Saturday the 26th of January with an Australia Day Family Brunch.
