3 Day Zen Intensive Retreat in France

22nd August 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 25th August 2019 @ 2:30 pm

Event Navigation

The three-day (64hr) retreat format is based on the “group sanzen” format developed by Shinzan Roshi, together with the dyad work of American teacher, Charles Berner. This creates a uniquely powerful combination. This format is suitable for those with no prior meditation experience, but can also be very powerful for those who have an on-going or developing practice. For more information about these retreats click here.

We do not charge a fixed amount for these retreats, and instead would suggest a donation of between £100 and £250, depending on your means.

This retreat will be held at a retreat centre in the beautiful Loire Valley, France (see photos below) and will be conducted wholly in French. Daizan may speak at times through an interpreter.
