Rohatsu Day of Zen - 6 December 2014

In celebration of Rohatsu (holiday commemorating the historical Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment), the Zen Fellowship of Bakersfield will host a Day of Zen Practice at the local George and Millie Ablin House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

A Day of Zen, or zazenkai, is a short sesshin, a term which means “to touch the mind.” This is an excellent opportunity to practice sitting concentration, silence, and reflection in a beautiful and architecturally significant setting.

The Day of Zen will be led by Richard Collins, a Zen monk and teacher in the lineage of Taisen Deshimaru and Kodo Sawaki.

Registration includes instruction, a day of practice, breakfast, lunch, and evening hors d'oeuvres.

Those without prior experience of zazen or other meditation practices are welcome.
