Summer retreats - meditation and buddhism - june, july august, september 2018


Several retreat periods are offered by the buddhist monastery Ryumonji (Alsace, France) during the summer. There is a special reduced rate if you come for a three week period of zen buddhist practice and meditation (zazen). Beginners are welcome to attend during this summer period, there will be introductions organised specifically for them and a monk or nun will be available to assist them.



 

Since the Buddha's time certain periods of the year have been spent in spiritual retreats. These originally happened during the rainy season. This is an excellent chance to retire from the world to deepen or learn zen practice. During the whole summer beginners are welcome. Special introductions are organised for them and they will be assisted by a monk or nun.

 

 

 

 

Teaching will be given by  Maître Reigen Wang-Genh, assisted by experienced monks and nuns.
