February Zen retreat, led by Bon Shim SSN

January 31, 9:30 pm - February 2, 5:00 pm

Yong Maeng Jong Jin: to leap like a tiger while you are sitting

The retreats are silent, in our Mountain Zen Center located in the middle of nature, in the incredible Alta Garrotxa Natural Park, in the Pyrenees: the ideal place for a retreat. The participants follow an intensive program of sitting and walking mediation, chanting, bowing and formal meals, trying to keep alive the practice of attention at all times.

In this retreat there will be kong-an practice, Dharma talk and personal interviews with the teacher.

At the end of the retreat there will be a Precepts ceremony.
