A sesshin is an intensive period of meditation, led in complete silence, open to all, experienced practitioners or beginners, though it might be advisable to have previous experience or have followed some introduction course.

"We give up all the things we usually have in our daily life, we cut ourselves off our habitual current. We need to fast from thinking and the sesshin offers us that space of silence to help us free ourselves from our habits." HÔGEN
