Discovery week (August)

You seek a spiritual way, you want to give meaning to your life, to see clearly in a society with which you don’t share all the values… The Kanshoji monastery organizes a Zen discovery retreat.
For one week, you will share the daily life of monks, nuns and residents of the monastery.
Experienced practitioners will guide you. They will help you discover the Buddha Way in the Zen form:
– zazen (meditation)
– rituals
– manual work
– moments of meeting and sharing
Teachings about the Buddhist practice and philosophy will be given by Zen master Taiun Jean-Pierre Faure.
This discovery retreat is aimed at those not yet familiar with the practice of Zen.

Price: 100 € for the week + 10 € membership to The Kanshoji Zen Association.
This price is for beginners visiting Kanshoji for the first time and participating in the retreat in its entirety. The price is comprehensive; it includes accommodation, food, training and teaching.
