Founded in 1999, the Paris Zen Dojo is a simple, quiet and friendly place. It is animated by the zen nun Josy Thibaut.
 
An early disciple of Master Taisen Deshimaru, then of his successor Master Kosen, Josy practices the silent sitting meditation since more than 30 years. She teaches the zazen practice with great compassion, especially to beginners.

On the days and times shown below, the Dojo is opened for the practice of Zazen. Zazen lasts around an hour and a half. We ask you to arrive 10 minutes in advance to prepare yourself for Zazen.
