Zen-Sesshin with Zensho

Zen-Sesshin with Zensho

Once a month the Tao Chan Zen Center in Wiesbaden organises an open Zen day under the direction of Zen Master Zensho.

A Zen-Sesshin with Zensho is a time of intensive Zen practice and encounter with an awakened western Zen Master.

In the peace and tranquility of the Zen meditation we gain an insight into the deep, fundamental nature of our individual mind. We transfer this awareness of the mind during kinhin (walking meditation) into movement and thereby practice the integration of Zen into everyday life.

 

What makes a Zen day with Zensho so special is that we experience that sympathetic love and spiritual force which are only discernible in the presence of an accomplished master.

The sesshin can become an inspiring spiritual experience for everyone, irrespective of previous experience and religious affiliation.

Program for the Zen Sesshin

The sesshin takes place unter the personal direction of Zen Master Zensho.

The Zen sesshin begins with an introduction for all new-comers by a Zen teacher from the center.
 
On each of the two days there are four meditation periods in sitting (zazen) of 25 minutes duration, followed by kinhin (walking meditation) for 15 minutes.
 
There then follows a dharma lecture by Zensho, which lasts approximately one hour.
 
During the break of around one hour there is the opportunity for a personal meeting.
 
Each day of the sesshin is rounded up with a short zazen period and closing words from Zensho.
