August Sesshin at Benburb


Tuesday, August 27 – Sunday, September 1, 2019

Ryushin Paul Haller, the guiding teacher of Black Mountain Zen Centre, will spend the last two weeks of August with us this year, culminating in a five-day sesshin at Benburb Priory.

This silent meditation retreat will start on Tuesday evening, August 27, and end on Sunday afternoon, September 1, with the final event of our practice period, the shuso ceremony of Andre Elsen. Participants can either attend for the whole five days or for the weekend from Friday evening to Sunday. The suggested donation to cover our costs has slightly increased to £​310 for the full five days, and ​​£165 for the weekend, Friday to Sunday – this covers your single room and three vegetarian meals per day, plus unlimited tea and coffee during breaks. Please offer what you can afford, and if you can make a larger donation, that is also gratefully received.

Please follow the details on the application form in order to apply. An updated application form is available here: Sesshin application
