Sesshin 2017

5-day Zen sesshin retreat led by Daizan Skinner Roshi, exploring the practices of ‘mirror zen’.  Due to high demand we’re running two sesshins back-to-back to give more people the opportunity to attend.

For centuries, Zen teachers have taught using the image of a mirror. In pre-modern Japan at Tokeiji temple generations of female Zen masters developed specific practices in which actual mirror reflection was used as a powerful and rapid means of awakening spiritual insight. During this retreat we will be exploring both the mirror Zen teachings of the great female Zen masters of Tokeiji and the wider mirror-wisdom of Zen.

The retreat is suitable for those with an established sitting practice and a willingness to face themselves on all levels.

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.
