Summer Camp 2015 : 4 sessions of zen
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 …

"Who says this is all in vain?
This is exactly what my body needs."
