A zazenkai is a mini-retreat; it's a one day version of sesshin. Contact for more information.


Our Zazenkais are held in-person in South Pasadena, CA with a virtual option as well. A typical zazenkai begins at 9 AM (PST) and ends at 3:00 PM (PST). Yoga is offered during the day. There is also an opportunity to meet with a teacher. Lunch is provided, and participants eat informally and maintain silence. For those of us who have difficulty scheduling several days for sesshin, a zazenkai gives us the opportunity to sustain our personal meditation practice in a community setting. It is usually scheduled on a Saturday.
