Summer Interim, now until Fall Kessei Dai Bosatsu Zendo hosts a number of guest groups who rent some of our facilities to conduct their own retreats or seminars. During this period, we also accept interim residents -- that is, serious Zen students who wish to experience at least two weeks of residential Zen practice. This is a wonderful opportunity for those interested in experiencing full-time Zen practice, but who cannot afford either the time or the fee for a full kessei. There is no fee for this program, but you will be expected to follow the resident's schedule.
