A l'occasion de l'anniversaire de la mort de Maître Deshimaru, une sesshin est organisée, regroupant différents anciens disciples-proches du maître.
Devenus maintenant maîtres eux mêmes, ils proposent de se réunir chaque année dans un temple différent de l'une des sanghas participantes.
La prochaine Mokudo sesshin sera organisée en 2018 dans le temple Yujo nyusanji de Maître Kosen et de sa sangha, sur la commune de Rosis dans l'Héraut.

RIght now all seats are booked, but you can register on a waiting list..
The practice of zazen is the essence of Zen.
Sitting facing the wall on a round cushion (zafu ), the legs in the lotus or semi lotus position, the knees laid down on the ground, the back well straight, the neck stretched, the left hand on the right hand, the edge of the hands on the abdomen, in a total immobility.
The breathing is quiet and the concentration is more directed to the breathing out.
The conscious mind is still, without entertaining nor rejecting the thoughts, we let them pass through the concentration on the posture and the breathing.
This sesshin is managed by Master Kosen Thibaut
Zen monk since 1971, Master Kosen practiced fifteen years at the of Master Taisen Dehimaru, of whom he was one of the closest disciples.
Since the death of his Master, he continues the practice of Zazen and directs many Sesshins.
In 1984, he received Shiho (the Dharma transmission) from the hands of Master Niwa Zenji, the highest authority of Zen in Japan, and hence became himself a Master in the tradition of Zen.
In 1997, he published the book "Zen, the inner revolution" and in 2006 he published "The five stages of Awakening (Editions du Relié)"
