Fusatsu (J) literally “Chanting together”, a practice of aligning with and renewing the Bodhisattva Precepts for monastics and formal students is usually held on or near new and full moon days on a Wednesday and is practised during the 6:00 am formal sitting in the Hatto.

Daruma-ki O-sesshin

The Daruma-ki O-sesshin will begin on Friday, October 1st, at 8:00 p.m. It will end on Friday, October 8th at noon.

A Note to Preliminary and Public Students Concerning O-sesshin

During an O-sesshin the schedule is such that there is no time to do telephone interviews or reply to email correspondence sent by public students. Public students are asked to send their weekly practice journals, as they will be reviewed. But unless there is something that needs an immediate reply, you will not receive an email reply until the week following the O-sesshin.

Hermitage

The Roshi is currently in an extended period of "self-isolation" due to underlying health issues until the COVID-19 situation clarifies.
