Zen meditation : next sesshin

Zen can also be more intensively practised during sesshins (Zen retreats). Sesshins are planned throughout the year, during extended weekends which coincide with vacations and culminate with the summer camp consisting of three sessions of 10 days. Many of the sesshins take place in our temple Yujo Nyusanji, in the splendid regional park of Caroux in the south of France and at the templo Shobogenji in Argentina.
