Rohatsu 2017

Two Rivers Zen Community

Rohatsu Sesshin

Residential Retreat

Thursday, December 7 – Sunday, December 10, 2017

Rohatsu Sesshin (“Morning Star Retreat”) is the most important retreat of the year. It marks and celebrates Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment and marks the end of the Autumn Ango (practice period). It is a very powerful and deep gathering of individuals dedicated to realizing and expressing the Buddha Way through deep silence, extended periods of sitting and walking meditation, shared meals, liturgy and work activities. Seiso Paul Cooper, Sensei and Senior Sangha members will lead Dharma talks and Q & A discussions. Seiso Sensei will also be available to provide private practice interviews. Rohatsu Sesshin, considered to be the strongest retreat of the year, functions as  a powerful container that supports integration of body and mind, our individuality and oneness with the community and the world. We invite you to join us for all or part of this year’s Rohatsu Sesshin at the lovely Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, P.A. as a way to strengthen, deepen and honor your practice through the shared energy of group practice.
