9 February ◷ 20:00 - 11 February ◷ 16:00


Our practice has mountains and valleys but always continues and February begins with a sesshin. Some things captivate us and others escape our attention. The illusion that endless engrossment in daily activities, related to work and leisure, will lead us somewhere, will lead us far, it is out there. Yet out there there’s also the Buddha’s Way. To take the right posture is the right thing to do.

On February 10th and 11th the Sangha meets with Master Barbara Kosen for the first sesshin of 2024. The time of arrival is the 9th in the evening, before the dinner (20:00) that inaugurates the sesshin. Afterwards beginners will have an introduction to the meditation posture, zazen, and the behavior in the dojo.

Zazen and samu will occupy most of the time of the following day and a half, without expectations, without looking for profit. Concentration is established and everything flows. Zazen at dawn, zazen at mid-morning, at mid-afternoon and in the evening. Samu (work around the temple´s operation and premises) also plays a part in the practice.

Accommodation can be in dormitory, in a hut or in the dojo. The total price of the sesshin is € 70.

Attendants non-members of the Asociación Zen Taisen Deshimaru must register and pay an annual membership fee of 20 euros. This can be made on-the-spot during the sesshin.
