About us

Please note: participants must enter by Thursday evening.

Characterized by silence and deep introspection, sesshin is recommended to anyone who is sincerely interested in experiencing intensive Zen training. We wake up each day before dawn to begin a schedule that includes 7 to 10 hours of zazen, chanting services, formal silent meals in the zendo (oryoki), silent work practice and talks by the teacher and senior students. Sesshin is an opportunity to receive personal guidance in private interviews with the teacher, draw from the tremendous strength of people practicing together and experience the deep stillness that lies within each one of us.

Because sesshin is a very intensive retreat, those wishing to attend should first complete an Introduction to Zen Training Retreat. Those who have never participated in sesshin before or who are newer to Zen practice should plan on beginning with the Thursday-Sunday portion of the retreat. Most sesshins may be joined in progress as late as Thursday evening. First-time sesshin participants should call the Training Office to set up a “sesshin interview” as part of the registration process.

To register for this retreat, please contact the Training Office at (845) 688-2228.

Please don’t let financial issues prevent you from attending a program at the Monastery. If you can’t afford the program fee, there are options.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
