February Sesshin

10 February, 2017 @ 20:00 - 12 February, 2017 @ 16:00

| Free

Dear friend,

Don’t you see this person of awakening,

Who has stopped studying,

And lives without effort?

He doesn’t try to push aside illusions,

Nor try to find the truth.

-Yoka Daishi, Shodoka-

The first Sesshin of 2017, with renewed energy, a lot of empty space to create, live and practice zazen in all its depth. Lead, in Shorin-Ji, by the venerable Barbara Kosen who will give her teachings during the practice. The practice will have the following rhythm:

  • Friday 10/2: arrivals, with a welcome dinner at 21h.
  • Saturday 11/2: Intensive zazen practice with 4 sessions, waking up at dawn and ending at approx. 22.30h. Zazen will be alternated with meals, samu practice and rest.
  • Sunday 12/2: We will follow the same rhythm as Saturday, but practice will only be in the morning (two zazen sessions). We will end the Sesshin with a celebratory meal and farewells, leaving the temple at around 16h.

Cost of the Sesshin: 60€ for members of the “Asociación Zen Taisen Deshimaru” (Taisen Deshimaru Zen Society). Membership is required for practice in Shorin-Ji, therefore, non-members will be required to pay a membership fee of 20€ in addition to the fee for the Sesshin. Membership applications may be made once at the Shorin-Ji temple, or via this link.

 

Please bring a lantern, bowl, and sleeping bag.
