Several samou weeks (voluntary work in the service of the community) are planned at Ryumonji, to prepare for the inauguration of the new dojo (140€ / 105€ for under 25s, students and jobseekers). Beginners are welcome, with a special welcome for them.
Many weekend and week-long programs are held at the monastery to allow practitioners to discover or deepen Zen Buddhist practice. These programs are open to beginners who can learn from the experience of the monks and nuns at the temple.
