SUMMER RETREATS 2024

Since the time of the Buddha, certain periods of the year have been dedicated to long term spiritual retreats. These originally corresponded to the rainy season. 

Since then, this tradition has been carried on, and is now also being continued in Europe. A rare opportunity to withdraw from the world and devote oneself to the practice of zazen - Zen meditation. 

At Ryumonji Monastery, throughout the day, each activity allows for the practice of concentration to be fully experienced in the present moment. 
We offer a range of packages - see below - between June and September 2024 >>
