Advance notice of annual Sesshin:

15-20th of September

Sesshin (lit. to touch the heart-mind) is a meditation retreat with intensive sitting, a daily Teisho (Zen talk) and opportunity for interview with a teacher.

A wonderful three-day Mini-Sesshin was held at Clouds Mapleton in May (participants pictured below) and we are looking forward to hosting a five-day retreat in September.

It is a beautiful venue in the rainforest hinterland of the Sunshine Coast and we have negotiated very affordable accomodation. Numbers will be limited, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to participate.

Please see https://sunmountainzen.org.au/annual-sesshin/ for more information and contact us if you are interested.
