Hoen-ji Fall Anniversary Sesshin

Related topics:

** Fall Sesshin for in-person attendance is now full and registration is closed. Online participation registration is still open, but dokusan may not be offered to those registering after the deadline of October 13.

This fall sesshin commemorates the founding of the Zen Center of Syracuse Hoenji 51 years ago in a small room on the Syracuse University campus. After a series of temporary spaces, the Sangha met in Shinge Roshi’s attic for 12 years, and then moved to its current six-acre home in 1996. She was installed as abbot on Oct. 18 of that year.  Read more »

Hoen-ji Spring Sesshin

Related topics:

Spring is a time of joyous renewal at Hoen-ji — the grass growing greener with each sitting, the birds returning and starting their families, the trees budding and leafing out right before our eyes. Each one of us, going deeper and deeper into our zazen, feels the rejuvenation and transformation that occur. Indeed, inside equals outside.

Led by Shinge Roshi, this sesshin will be offered both in-person and online, and will include zazen, morning service, teisho and dokusan. 

Online Participation, suggested contribution: $100-$150. Read more »
