20th-27th August/ Zen Meditation Retreat with Michel Genko Dubois Roshi
August 20 - August 27
Led by: Michel Genko Dubois Roshi
About the retreat:
Sesshin means “to touch the heart”. To practice zazen, to be practiced by zazen. While touching the heart, we discover there is nothing missing. Everything is already here. In this time of war, fear, uncertainty and fallback on identity, sesshin is an invitation to reveal the boundless space which unfolds from the center of our chest – the boundless space which is peace. Sesshin is an invitation to replenish within us the joy of this very life and to let it unfold throughout our entire existence.
The silent retreat will include 8 hours of daily meditation, teachings (Teisho), private interviews with the teacher and two hour of samu (mindful work). The emphasis will be on sitting/walking meditation and continuous practice: no separation between formal sitting and all the aspects of daily life: work and relationships.
