188. Touching, collecting  (re-collecting) the heart-mind, realizing and coming home to the heart-mind, this is our task in sesshin, our time of intensive practice. We are helped in doing this by our practices of concentration, of letting-be, of letting-go and being-with (in shikansaza), by the practice of mindfulness  (not only in zazen but also in all our activities), by self-inquiry  (especially as we face our life koan), and finally by our being directed towards the transformation of oneself and the world. By our own commitment to the practice of sesshin we can encourage one another in this transforming work.
