We would like to invite you to a meditation retreat (sesshin), which will be held on November 25-27. 2022 in the Buddhist center on Mala Skála.

The weekend retreat (retreat, sesshin) is focused on the intensive practice of Zen meditation in sitting (zazen), walking (kinhin) and simple daily activities in the traditional Japanese Zen school of Soto master Dogen. As part of the retreat, there will be a study of Buddhist philosophy and a discussion of the Dharma. Mutual, open discussion leads to the opportunity to express everyone’s experience and perspective on Buddhist practice.
