Online sesshin - 13 -15 November
In these difficult times for all, let us continue to practice together. We suggest that you follow all the sesshin from your home: zazen, ceremonies, ritual meals, teachings, questions and answers.
Each month Master Reigen Wang-Genh directs retreats ranging from three to nine days in length. These retreats are open to everyone; for both beginners and ordained people alike, sesshins are an opportunity to delve into the heart of Soto Zen. This experience allows participants to experience a practice that has been transmitted through the centuries which affects all aspects of daily life.
Sesshins are comprised of four sessions of zazen - seated meditation - per day, divided by samu - communal work -, silent meals, and cermonies.
In order to put you fully in the spirit of the sesshin, you are asked to register formally.
You will then receive all the practical information and the procedure to follow.
This sesshin is of course free.
But the temple would be very grateful if you would consider to make a gift. Indeed, during this period when all activities are suspended, the operating costs, they do not stop.

To support your zazen practice - zen meditation - Master Wang-Genh has recorded a series of thematic videos.
They are available in French, with English subtitles. You need to enable the subtitles. The views were taken at the Zen monastery Ryumonji ( Alsace) where Master Wang-Genh most often resides.
A Kito ceremony - to help a person in great physical or moral difficulty - will take place on Saturday after the evening zazen. On Sunday morning, the ceremony of remembrance will take place after the morning zazen. If you would like to give a name for either ceremony, please send us an email.
