May 20 – 25 – May Sesshin on Zoom ● Practicing with Jizo Bodhisattva
Our Memorial Day weekend sesshin will be offered on Zoom, beginning Wednesday evening, May 20, and continuing through Monday afternoon, May 25. It will be co-led by Sosan Theresa Flynn and My On Susan Hagler. Everyone is invited to attend any or all of the sesshin activities on a “pay what you can” basis. Here is the schedule: May 2020 sesshin. The Zoom links will be posted on this schedule spreadsheet closer to the dates.
Jizo Bodhisattva vowed not to enter nirvana until hell is emptied of all the suffering beings. It is said that Jizo travels to hell, as well as all other realms, helping all who suffer. In this sesshin, Sosan’s and Myo On’s dharma talks will focus on how we can practice with Jizo bodhisattva’s vow, receiving encouragement from this vow and from the bodhisattvas in our lives, and/or exploring how to live this vow for others.
