This is an opportunity to deepen your practice with our Spring sesshin. Sesshin is a retreat that provides an intensive meditation experience in the company and support of experienced Zen practitioners. If this is your first retreat, we will guide and support you through it.

Spring at The Grail is a beautiful time of year. We have walking and sitting meditation outside as the weather allows. Breathing the gentle spring air, we walk along roads lined with trees in bud and blossom.

There are many opportunities for personal interviews with Roshi. Each morning Roshi or senior students offer dharma talks. We also have Council practice on Sunday and Thursday afternoons during which we share our retreat experience with each other.

We prepare and share delicious vegetarian meals together, oriyoki style. During afternoons, we can choose to work with art media doing the Practice of Immediacy, or meditate or take silent walks. If you don't have your own oriyoki bowls, reserve a set to rent or buy in advance by emailing: Bowls rental is $20. Bowls purchase is $40.
