Tucson Buddhism Network
Diamond Sangha (Robert Aitken)
The Redemptorist Renewal Center is the host facility for Pathless Path program in Tucson, Arizona. This unique experience includes several components such as a Contemplative Intensive Retreat and Zen Sesshin. Sesshin means "to touch the mind," and is a traditional three-to-eight day silent retreat in the Zen Buddhist tradition. Sesshin is an opportunity to deepen one's practice, strengthened by the presence of others doing the same. We practice alone and together; seek harmony between body and mind, and between the individual and the group. We emphasize doing things together as one way to help each other realize this harmony. Each day of sesshin includes zazen (seated focused awareness), kinhin (walking meditation), silent meals, sutras, dokusan (private interviews with the teacher), teisho (talk given by the Roshi or teacher), and samu (work practice).
