Tuition fee: $2555

Event Navigation

Gyokuryuji temple Japan

We’re proud to announce the upcoming Zenways 2018 Japan Trip!

Dates: 9-20th June 2018 (sesshin will run from Monday 11th – Friday 15th).

The 2018 Zen retreat in Japan will be led by Daizan Roshi and Shinkai Roshi and held at a retreat centre near the top of Mount Ikoma, a beautiful mountain just outside of Nara city. This area is seen as the spiritual heartland of Japan.

The retreat will be followed by a period of cultural activities and sightseeing in and around the incredible cities of Kyoto (packed full of world heritage sites) and Nara (the ancient capital from 710-794CE). We also plan on spending a day visiting Gyokuryuji, where Shinzan Roshi lives, and the surrounding area (if circumstances allow for it). Shinzan Roshi recently retired from teaching formally.

The cost is $US2555, which covers accommodation, travel (excluding airfare), and the full cost of the retreat including meals while at the retreat centre.

Spaces are limited so please plan in advance. We’re expecting 2018 to be just as amazing as the past trips have been.
