Zazenkai (All-day sit) presents us with an opportunity to immerse ourselves in zazen. The day includes an extended zazen schedule, liturgy, face-to-face interview with a teacher, a formal talk, and oryoki lunch (formal meal served in the zendo). Zazenkai is an important way for experienced meditators to further their practice and for newer one to take a preparatory step toward the practice of sesshin, a silent meditation retreat.
