Taking Part in the Gathering
Pacific Zen Summer Sesshin 2022
Great Sesshin, Great Gathering, Summer Moon
*Registration is now closed - next Sesshin will be online in October*
Santa Sabina Retreat Center in Northern California
Monday, June 13th – Sunday, June 19th, 2022
the great, round summer sesshin
touching the heart, touching the mind,
round as the sun, round as the moon,
round as a bicycle wheel,
roses and ravens and roads through the woods, inexplicably round,
the silence of meditation comes up around us,
and there we feel free,
round as a well full of starlight in the woods—
taking part in the summer gathering,
the round smile of summer
There will be personal interviews and deep meditation, teaching talks and conversations, old friends and new, a refuge ceremony, brilliant teachers, music, great enlightenment, mistakes, and delight.
This is the first in-person sesshin we've held in two and a half years. This will be our only in-person sesshin this year.
So you might want to sign up soon

Dear PZI Friends—
We come together across oceans and continents with PZI members, teachers, musicians, and those new to PZI. We can discover things together which we could not discover alone. There's a scholarship fund for PZI members who want to attend, and need financial assistance. If you're not a member, we invite you to join us today! You can read more about this below.
Thank you for all you have offered to PZI during these last many months, and these last many decades. It's nice to have each other as we find our way.
—Board President Tess Beasley Sensei & Director
