Sesshins/Intensive Retreats

We invite you to rest in the silence of  sesshin at Clouds in Water. Sesshin, which means “collecting the heart/mind”, provides a rare chance to step into a sanctuary of stillness, to close the door for a little while on the cacophony, and to appreciate the freedom and spaciousness of life in the present. Whether you are a beginner or experienced practitioner, we hope you will consider joining this wonderful practice. Sesshins are held monthly. All sesshins are 7 - 9 pm the first night and 6 am - 9 pm the second and subsequent days unless noted otherwise.
