Denko-e Sesshin


Denko-e Sesshin

 

Denko-e ("Gathering of Light Sesshin") is part of a cycle of four traditional sesshins initiated by Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi. Denko-e has a lighter schedule and emphasis on teaching.  As with all Jikoji sesshins, you may also attend part-time, but please call ahead to sign up for meals and lodging.
