19 - 22   Samark Sesshin
Zen & Zikr 

In a Sesshin, we alternate dancing with meditating. We opt for a longer weekend, so all can really get into the rhythm of a Sesshin. A wonderful way to go deeper inside and let the dances do their inner work. To further the inner process, part of the weekend will be in silence. 
Be sure to register in time, as the two previous Sesshins filled up very early.
