ROHATSU SESSHIN - NOV 29th to DEC 5th
You are all invited to attend Rohatsu Sesshin, our one and only
sesshin of the year at Zenshuji. (A sesshin is a week-long retreat
in which people devote themselves to zazen.) This year, Rohatsu
Sesshin will begin on Sunday, Nov. 29th, and conclude at
midnight on Sat. Dec. 5th.
Three meals will be served each day. For those who plan to join us for meals, it
would be good to know if you are planning to eat with us. If you are planning to
sit for quite a bit of the Sesshin, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
to register. We often get more people sitting with us on Sunday and particularly
on Saturday, the last day. There is a suggested donation of $50- 150, on a sliding
scale depending on your situation. Please come and join us, even if you can only
sit for an hour or two.
MOCHITSUKI & MOCHI ORDER
We will have the annual end-of-the-year Mochitsuki (mochi pounding) at Zenshuji on
Sunday December 27th from 7am to 5pm. We need a lot of muscle power to pound a lot
of mochi rice. Please help us whenever you can. If you are ordering mochi, please
mail/hand in the mochi order form below by the 22nd. Every year we have people asking
to buy but they did not order. Remember, we order the mochigome (mochi rice) by
the order form counts. Please help us to be more accurate. Order As Soon As Possible.
One pound of small mochi = $4; Okasane-Mochi 1 set = $7
