Several samou weeks ( voluntary work in the service of the community ) are planned at Ryumonji, to prepare for the inauguration of the new dojo (140€ / 105€ for under 25s, students and jobseekers). Beginners are welcome, with a special welcome for them.
As many people are unable to visit a dojo, we offer you the opportunity to follow the daily meditations, as well as the ceremonies, live on your computers and smartphones.
You will find on this page the weekly program, the sutras (texts of the ceremonies), as well as videos to help you in your practice.
The meditation sessions are organised in one or two ways:
- One period of zazen - 45 minutes
- Two periods : 30 minutes, 10 minutes kinhin - walking meditation, 25 minutes zazen followed by a ceremony.
Which of these is used is not arranged in advance.
GOOD PRACTICE AND STAY TUNED!
