We are very pleased to invite you to The Teacup and Skullcup Sesshin, the 3rd annual sesshin at Windhorse Hill Retreat Center, home of the Engaged Mindfulness Institute and Prison Mindfulness Institute in Deerfield, Massachusetts.
The great Tibetan Buddhist master, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, gave two seminars in 1974 on Zen and Tantra—the transcripts of which were later published under the title The Teacup and the Skullcup: Where Zen and Tantra Meet—discussing the parallels, intersections, and differences between the Zen and Vajrayana Buddhist paths. Similarly, the Tea Cup and Skull Cup Sesshin will incorporate influences from both the Zen and the Vajrayana Buddhist teachings while following a traditional sesshin format, with the emphasis on silent sitting and walking meditation (zazen and kinhin), interspersed with Dharma talks, dokusan (meditation interviews), meals and samu (work practice).
The sesshin leaders, Roshi Grover Genro Gauntt and Acharya-Roshi Fleet Shinryu Maull have both been practicing meditation for more than 40 years and teaching for over 30 years, pursuing deep practice, study and service in many different spiritual and contemplative traditions.
Roshi Genro and Roshi Fleet will give Dharma talks influenced by the Zen and Vajrayana traditions, respectively.
