Led by Taiun Jean-Pierre Faure


A silent retreat * in homage of Buddha’s awakening. Every year, in each temple, the nuns and monks commemorate Buddha’s awakening, reliving his experience, sat in zazen. The Buddha’s awakening retreat * unfolds in silence, facing oneself. The 30 min zazen follow one another and alternate with kin-hin. It ends with a great ceremony in honour of Buddha’s awakening.

* In Japanese: sesshin, “to touch the mind”
