Master Soko will lead this day and a half of zazen practice with monks, nuns, practitioners and beginners at the Ryokan Zen Dojo in Barcelona. Sitting on a simple zafu without rejecting or clinging to any thought, letting them pass; both breathing and body harmonised in the correct posture, without hurry, without noise, just the song of the birds among the plants and flowers of our patio.
On tuesday 2/24 we will reopen the dojo and practice zazen at 6.50 am. It will be conducted by master Soko as his last activity in Argentina. We will have guenmai and then make a toast.
We are all invited to enjoy the Way practicing together.
