To all those who wish to do a spiritual retreat this summer.

In order to comply with the health regulations, we had to adapt the summer practice in Kanshoji.
The usual sessions (Discovery, Daily Life, Summer Sessions) are replaced from July 10 to the end of August by Practice Retreats (for details, click here). You will be free to choose your dates and the length of your stay (5 days minimum).

You will be free to choose your dates and the length of your stay (5 days minimum).
You will practice zazen (meditation) and receive teachings: these will no longer be done by videoconference, but will be given in your presence by the abbot and the different teachers in the strict respect of barrier gestures.
You will be able to meet each other and the responsibles.
You will be able to take part in outdoor work, to take a walk in nature, to rest.
Because of the distances to be observed, we will not be able to eat all together in the same refectory; if some prefer, they will be able to eat separately.
If you stay longer than fourteen days, you will completely join the daily life of the residents.
If the situation continues to improve, the conditions of our retreats will continue to evolve. We will keep you informed as the situation progresses.
