Barcelona Sesshin 9-10 de Junio 2018

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.

The monk without homeDiscover the inalienable life Which is without going and coming, That is the practice of the Way. Then you will reach the true vision And your ego will not be a transitory self But an eternal self. As long as we do not wake up to that, It is useless to be born in this world.
