Zen meditation : next sesshin
Zen can also be more intensively practised during sesshins (Zen retreats). Sesshins are planned throughout the year, during extended weekends which coincide with vacations and culminate with the summer camp consisting of three sessions of 10 days. Many of the sesshins take place in our temple Yujo Nyusanji, in the splendid regional park of Caroux in the south of France and at the templo Shobogenji in Argentina.
From Thursday 28 December to Monday 01 January 2024 (arrivals the evening before). This sesshin will take place in Yujo Nyusanji zen temple. Master Rei Kiku Femenias will be responsible of teaching.
