TAISEN DESHIMARU SESSHIN
29 April ◷ 21:00 - 2 May ◷ 16:00100€
The sesshin, directed by his direct disciple and Zen master Barbara Kosen, will take place at Shorin-ji from April 30th to May 2nd. The arrival is set for April 29th in the evening.
Also called the sesshín of gratitude, in homage to master Deshimaru’s mission in Europe. It is celebrated on the dates of the anniversary of his passing away.
As usual, we will practice both veterans and beginners without distinction, disciples and non-disciples. Zazen and samu, all together in harmony, without goal or rank, just as Deshimaru taught.
Meals are for the most part vegetarian, with the exception made at the end of the sesshín, when we cook a celebration meal. Participants must bring their own bowls, taking care and washing them after each meal. A flashlight and sleeping bag are also required.
If you are not member of the Association Zen Taisen Deshimaru yet, you will have to register paying the annual member fee of 20 €, as it is a requirement for practicing at Shorin Ji.
