To touch the mind, to become intimate with oneself, concentrating in zazen on the unified body and mind. This teaching was transmitted by Master Taisen Deshimaru.
Neither philosophy, nor ethics, nor religion, Zen allows us to reach the origin of every philosophy, ethics or religion. Source of awakening, Zen transforms our life here and now.
Sesshin means touching the mind, it is a period dedicated to the intense practice of zazen, including samu, concentration on daily chores such as cooking or dish washing.
