The next 7-day sesshin will be held in Sanneji 30.7.-6.8.2022. Sesshin will be
led by sensei Sangen Salo.

Sesshin is a zen meditation retreat, where one has the possibility to
dive into intensive practice in a traditional setting. It is an
opportunity for practice without disturbances, leaving everyday concerns
behind and putting full emphasis on the present moment.

In addition to zazen, the daily schedule includes teisho (a talk given
in the zendo by the teacher) and dokusan (private instructions). There
are also work meditation periods with simple kitchen and housekeeping

The cost of the sesshin is 250 euros for members and 360 euros for
non-members, and it is to be paid before the beginning of the sesshin.
