All-day sits at New York Zendo offer people a rare opportunity to spend a full day immersed in Zen practice. These intense, silent meditation days help deepen one's zazen experience and can help prepare for 5 to 7-day sesshin at Dai Bosatsu Zendo.

Typically held on Saturdays, the program will include zazen, chanting, and formal meals eaten in traditional monastic style. Special talks, readings, and Dharma talks by guest teachers may also be given. Please see our calendar for dates and fees.
