Online sesshin and teachings on the precepts of the Bodhisattva January 20 to 24

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 on the precepts of the Bodhisattva, questions and answers. The first two days will be devoted to teachings on the precepts, and the next three days to sesshin and also following these teachings.

ZEN ON LINE 

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.

Master Wang-Genh gives lectures on various themes. It is also possible to ask him questions by e-mail which he will answer during the mondo - questions and answers.

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.

In the life of a Zen practitioner, the ceremony of Jukai is a crucial step. It consists in receiving the precepts - Kai - of the Bodhisattva and, by doing so, of taking refuge in the three treasures: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.
