Geleitet von Taiun Jean-Pierre Faure

Dieser Rückzug (auf Japanisch: sesshin, “den Geist berühren”) ist die Gelegenheit, das Jahr zu beenden und das neue Jahr gemeinsam und unter den besten Bedingungen zu beginnen.


  • Health regulations

    Anyone coming to Kanshoji is asked to:
    - present their health pass on arrival,
    - respect the barrier gestures, including the wearing of masks, within the monastery.
    Concerning the wearing of the mask, we mainly wear it during the moments of meeting and exchange.
    In particular we do not wear it during zazen (Zen meditation).


    Due to the sanitary situation, it is no longer possible to stay in a dormitory. Everyone is accommodated in a single room, which reduces our accommodation capacity and therefore our financial resources. An average single rate is offered. Those with a small budget can ask for a reduction. Those with sufficient means can give more.

    We apologize we cannot receive your payment by credit card.

  • During the retreat it is recommended to remain silent.

  • Arrival : Wednesday December 29th between 3 & 6pm.
    Departure : Saturday January 1st after lunch.
    If you have a set of bowls, please bring it with you.
