Zazenkai (meditation service) @ Blue Mountain Zendo
Apr 22 @ 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Zazenkai (uniting for meditation) provides an opportunity for a student to intensify and deepen their practice through the experience of longer periods of uninterrupted zazen.

Throughout zazenkai we use the exact techniques that are followed during sesshin (zen retreat). On these evenings of zazenkai we practice zazen (seated meditation), chanting (kido), walking meditation (kin-hin), silence, jihatsu (formal eating), dokusan (private meeting w/teacher) and to conclude, a Dharma Talk (sermon) is given by Joriki Dat Baker.

After closing, tea and fellowship are offered in the lounge.

Lehigh Valley Zazen @ Aikido Masers and self defense Acadamy
Apr 27 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Gassho, Blue Mountain Zendo will be offering zazen once again in the Lehigh Valley. After our move, four years ago to Andreas, several members have requested an opportunity to practice closer to the Lehigh Valley. Blue Mountain Zendo understands the long commute may make the main temple inaccessible for some students wishing to practice weekly.

 

 

 

 

Aikido Masters, located in Whitehall, Pa. has offered their dojo for this purpose. Every friday, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm zazenkai will be offered at Aikido Masters. The services will be abbreviated, however, the form will remain intact. Beginners are welcomed, and we hope this opportunity will make zen training accessible for all.

Training begins:
March 23 1018
6:30-8:00 pm

At:
Aikido Master

Sesshin 5 Day @ Blue Mountain Zendo
May 18 @ 7:00 pm – May 23 @ 10:00 am

Sesshin, literally “to collect the mind”, is the Zen Buddhist seclusion or intensive period, consisting of 3-14 days of silent meditative practice. Included in these periods are daily zazen, chanting, communal meals, Dharma Talks/Teisho (sermons), samu (work) periods, and private interview (Dokusan) twice daily with Ryuun Joriki Baker, Osho.

 

 

 

 

During Sesshin, the Zen Student concentrates fully on their practice by collecting and mending the unbalanced energies of mind. This balance of mind we so desperately seek feels hidden from us in our daily lives. We seek outwardly for that which we perceive we are lacking. It is only with a deep commitment, and a willingness to face ourselves honestly, that we are able to break through and realize the perfection that is Tathagata. This systemic realization stokes the flames of true wisdom which burns brighter and brighter as we continue to combust and burn away our delusions and attachments. For centuries, philosophy and theology have tried to explain and conceptualize this process, their attempts are intrinsically shallow and hollow at best. The awakened mind is beyond word and letter, and the path of liberation runs straight ahead. With one true cut, we free fall into the vast emptiness of shunyata. Sesshin is a time to dedicate ourselves to the exploration of this great matter, and a time to realize the vast love and compassion of the Bodhisattva.
