Jampa Ling Buddhist Centre, Co Cavan
May 15th – May 17th
A Zen retreat or ‘Sesshin’ (literally “touching the heart-mind”) is an opportunity to deepen your practice, devoting yourself almost exclusively to silent meditation for a period of time.
This weekend retreat will be led by Soto Zen Buddhist priest Rev. Myozan Kodo, and will be held in the beautiful surroundings of Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre, in Co Cavan (
A retreat in the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition, the Sesshin will mostly consist of the practice of Zazen, seated meditation. Three wholesome vegetarian meals will be served each day, with a welcome meal at 7pm on the Friday evening, followed by orientation.
There is room to accommodate eight men and eight women only, accommodated in a male and female dormitory, respectively.
As a traditional Zen retreat, it will held in silence, with some work practice involved. But there will also be some free time, an opportunity to walk in quiet contemplation in the beautiful grounds of Jampa Ling at spring time.
The price for this weekend retreat is €150, all inclusive, with a €50, non-refundable deposit required to secure a place.
