You want to discover the Zen : what is the Zen Buddhism? What is the Zen meditation?

We organise introductions every Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 11:40 a.m. live on the Internet, using Zoom.

During the confinement period, we continue the practice of Zen meditation using ZOOM. To participate, it is recommended that you start with an introduction.

In the links below you will find explanations of the essential points of Zazen: posture, breathing, and state of mind, as explained by Zen Masters : Explanations from the Zen master Pierre Soko Leroux on how to meditate
