1-day Zen retreat: The Teachings of Nantembo Roshi

17th March 2018 @ 11:15 am - 6:00 pm
Tuition fee: £30

Event Navigation

Nakahara Nantembo (1839-1925) was one of the greatest Zen masters of the 20th century. Born into a samurai family, Nantembo became known as a bold, dynamic man of forceful character and awesome determination. As a Zen teacher he evolved a unique approach to practice that emphasised the development of inner power.

This 1-day retreat will be based around the teachings of Nantembo Roshi, and will follow a similar format to the retreat day we held a few years ago (and has been available on video from our online shop).

The day will include an introduction to Nantembo Roshi and his background and life, and an introduction to Nantembo’s particular approach to practice, including his famous “MU” meditation for developing your inner power. With time and practice you will find your own life empowered with Nantembo’s boldness and courage.

This day retreat is suitable for anyone, whether you have an ongoing practice or not.

The day will be led by Daizan Roshi, and will include zazen (sitting meditation) and a chance for sanzen (private interview).

Please bring a cold vegetarian lunch to share. Tea will be provided.

Cost: £25 for zenways members, £40 otherwise
