Rohatsu Sesshin Begins November 30

Join us for the week-long sesshin (retreat) known as Rohatsu Sesshin.  You can take part in the entire week’s sittings, or any portion that works for you.  The Sesshin can be viewed on Zoom or attended in-person (unless new restrictions are put into place by St. Louis County — we will update this site if that happens).  Our resident priest and teacher, Daigaku Rumme´ will be giving Dharma Talks throughout the week.

Dokusan is available each day of the Sesshin (except Sunday) at 2:00 pm and again at 6:30 pm.

You can view the entire schedule for Rohatsu Sesshin by clicking here.


Due to increased security at Zoom, CZC has had to replace its prior link with a new one.  If you are in need of the new link, please contact us via email at
