One Continuous Thread: Home Practice Intensive- March 2021
March 22, 2021

Welcome to One Continuous Thread, a way to bring elements of a formal zazen intensive into your daily life. You will be able to participate with ZMM’s Sesshin via live webcast. We’ve designed this retreat keeping in mind the unique circumstances that each person finds themselves in during this time of social distancing. Some people can engage fully with a sesshin schedule in their homes; others may seek the rigors and rewards of a zazen intensive while navigating their ongoing responsibilities to work, family and friends. One Continuous Thread can hold it all as we sit together, even while our needs and experiences might be quite diverse. After registering, you’ll receive further guidance on how to engage with the retreat, and a full schedule of the Monastery’s zendo activities. You can base your own sitting around that or set your own schedule. Webcasted dharma talks during the week will also be available as audio files. There will be a Zoom offering for Opening Guidelines on Monday night and all participants, especially new ones, are encouraged to attend (regardless of day of arrival), and an evening Closing Reflections on Saturday evening.   All participants who register by 10am on Monday, March 22nd will…
