Families Several families attend the summer camp every year. Children are looked after during zazen practice: babysitting is organized alternately by parents.  

Permanent attendants if you wish to be a permanent for the next three sessions, you have to ask for it and register immediately.  Permanent attendants are involved in organization and operation. They must arrive at least one day before trainees and leave at the end of summer camp when clean up is over. They pay a special price. To apply as a permanent attendant, send a mail to permanent(at)zen-deshimaru.com

Ordinations  Master Kosen will give ordinations for bodhisattva, monk and nun at the end of the third session.

ABZD general meeting will take place during the preparatory phase of the 3rd session.

Touch the mind, 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, the Zen allows us to reach the origin of every philosophy, ethics or religion. Spring of awakening, the Zen transforms our life here and now.

Sesshin means touching the mind, it is a period where we essentially concentrate on zazen, also including samu, concentration on daily chore such as cooking or dish washing.
