en Zazen en el Mokusan Dojo Madrid -

Mokusan Dojo holds a free initiation class to Zen practice, i.e. Zazen, aimed at those who visit a Zen dojo for the first time.

Zazen is the posture of the Buddha’s Awakening. It is necessary to receive advice from an experimented practitioner in order to attain the correct posture. Very precise instructions about body, breathing and mental attitude will be provided, and also experimented during 30 concentrated, silent and still minutes.

Besides, the time before and after Zazen is also important, participants will be shown the different actions that take place at the dojo: how to enter, how to do the walking, how to exit, etc. Among these actions GasshoKinhin and Sampai are included too. All this opens a new dimension in our daily life, in as much as practice brings us back to the essence of our existence here and now to live in harmony and unity with ourselves and with the others.

Lastly, a round of questions in order to clarify will be held. Information about the dojo’s practice schedule, fees and the shanga’s activities will be also provided.

Advice:

•Please wear loose or elastic clothes enabling to cross legs easily. A small changing room is available.

•Arrive ten minutes early.
