Event Navigation

Sesshin 2017

This 5-day Zen sesshin retreat will be led by Daizan Roshi, together with Mark Kuren Sensei. The focus of the retreat will be the cultivation of energy and vitality, based on Zen master Hakuin’s book Yasenkana (Night Boat Conversations). We will be studying both the text itself and a range of energy and wisdom practices described and inspired by it.

The retreat will include still meditation (zazen), movement and energy work, samu (working meditation), and sanzen (1-to-1s) with both Daizan Roshi and Kuren Sensei.

Suitable for beginners and those more experienced.

We do not charge a fixed amount for these retreats, and instead would suggest a donation of between £350-450 (or £200-300 for Zenways members). In case of hardship in making a financial donation please contact us. No one is turned away through lack of means.
