calendar & events



  • Thursday, March 1 thru Sunday, March 4, 2018
  • Sesshin is a time where we can turn our light inward and move beyond the busyness of our world, re-connect to a more vast, quiet space inside, to realize and remember our true nature. Sesshin also affords us the ability to open to new possibilities beyond our fixed notions and beliefs, and to ready ourselves to be available for what is asked of us when we return to our life again. This sesshin we will join with Roshi Robert Kennedy of Morning Star Zendo and Sensei Carl Bachmann of Clear Mountain at beautiful Garrison Institute. In addition we will celebrate the lay dharma transmission for dharma holder and sangha mate, Michele Onryu Daniels. If anyone wants to attend the sesshin for just the weekend as opposed to Thursday – Sunday, you may do so by calling Garrison as there is no provision for just weekend attendance on their site. To register, go to: www.garrisoninstitute.org or call 845-424-4800. Registration closes Feb 28, 2018.


    For those people who cannot attend the full sesshin, but would like to attend the Installation Ceremony for Michele Daniels on Sunday, March 4, please contact her to let her know that you would like to attend and if you would like to stay for lunch - Please RSVP to Michele by Tues, Feb 20. The deadline is important as she must give Garrison a week’s notice ahead so that they can provide for the additional lunches. She can be contacted at asmgdaniels@optonline.net. She will provide you with details by e-mail as soon as the schedule is set.
