The monastery

Located in Dordogne, in the heart of the Périgord-Limousin National Park, Kanshoji is a Soto zen buddhist monastery. Its abbot, Taiun Jean-Pierre Faure, received the monk’s ordination from Taisen Deshimaru Roshi and the dharma transmission from Donin Minamizawa Roshi.

Daily at Kanshoji is given a theoretical and practical teaching.

This monastery has, as vocation, to train monks and nuns who will, in the future, transmit this way. It is also a school of life, opened to everyone who wishes to discover, deepen and put into practice the Buddha teaching.
