Summer Camp 2014 : 3 sessions of zen
Led by Master Kosen at Zen Temple Yujo Nuysanji
The summer camp, Ango : stay in peace ... A tradition initiated by Shakyamuni Buddha, the summer camp is a retreat in which you can concentrate on zazen, zen meditation practice.
The summer camp is divided into three sessions of about ten days each , each session is made up of :
♦ a preparatory phase in which 2 or 3 zazens and Master Kosen's teachings take place every day in the dojo
♦ practical teachings about Zen taught by experienced disciples
♦ samu : traditional temple daily activities: Zen cooking, gardening, cleaning up and Kesa sewing
♦ various other activities: yoga, do-in, shiatsu, aïkido, etc..
♦ a sesshin : intensive practice period with 4 zazens a day. Sesshin means “touching the spirit”, becoming intimate with oneself, concentrating on the unified boy and mind in zazen.
Why not you ?
For an 8-day session or the complete summer camp, join the international sangha of Master Kosen in the zen temple Yujo Nyusanji, and stop being a cog in the noisy machine… Our life passes quickly, there’s no other camp than this one …
As Ryokan puts it: :
"Who says this is all in vain?
This is exactly what my body needs."
Ango, summer camp : July 18-August 17, 2013

Méditation zen : la prochaine sesshin
La pratique de la méditation zen s'organise également autour de périodes plus intensives nommées sesshins. Les sesshins sont planifiées au cours de l'année, durant des week-ends prolongés alignés sur les vacances, et culminent au camp d'été qui dure trois sessions de 10 jours.
Ceci est le reflet de notre Sangha établie dans les deux hémisphères.

The universe is nothing else
than the testimony of a unique dharma.
What we see with forms
is only the reflection of our mind.
The mind does not exist in itself.
Its existence reveals itself
through the forms.
