Day-long sittings at New York Zendo offer people a rare opportunity to spend a full day immersed in zen practice. These intense, silent meditation days help deepen one's zazen experience and can help prepare for 5 to 7 day sesshins at Dai Bosatsu Zendo.
Typically held on Sundays, the program will include zazen, chanting, and formal meals eaten in traditional monastic style. Special talks, readings, teishos by Shinge Roshi or Dharma talks by guest teachers may also be given. Please see our calendar for dates and fees.
