Sesshin is a traditional Japanese word which means "Touch the spirit". It refers to a zen meditation retreat during which the practitioners live to the rhythm of the intensive practice in the Zen temple.

Such a period usually alternates four sessions of Zazen a day with periods of free time, meals, traditional ceremonies and participation in the necessary tasks of the temple (Samu).

Monks and nuns of the Sangha come together during Sesshins to deepen their practice under the Master's direction. Sesshins also allows beginners to discover authentic temple life.

Indeed sesshins offer a perfect framework to deepen and refresh the practice of Zen.
