This year, again, a period of 15 days of samu is offered to you before the summer camp. This is an opportunity to enjoy the temple, practice in the dojo while participating in the establishment of the traditional summer camp.

On this occasion, we do a great cleaning of the dormitories, the kitchen, the refectory as well as a cleaning of the surroundings and the swimming pool.

Work on the lower building has progressed seriously, but  we have the samu in perspective. People who are good handymen or more will be able to practice their art (fitting out a kitchen, sink, toilets, electricity, small masonry and paintings ...).

Moments of rest can give you the opportunity to explore the surrounding nature, small rocky mountains with beautiful forests and gorges where you can bathe.

Through the thought without thought Direct your attention towards the inside To examine the divine spark When your thought cannot go farther It goes back to the source Where nature and form Noumene and phenomenon Are not two but one.
