New Year's retreat
Applications are open for our New Year's retreat, which will be led by Sante Roshi this year. Jukai following the stroke of midnight is a great way to see in the New Year. We start with dinner on 29 December and finish with brunch on New Year's day. Please apply online by 15 December. As usual, this special retreat is restricted to members who have already attended sesshin at Zengården.
Zengården is the head temple and retreat center of the Swedish Zen Buddhist Society (Zenbuddhistiska Samfundet). We also have city Zen centres in Stockholm, Helsinki, Lund, Göteborg, Tampere and Glasgow and sitting groups in Uppsala, Umeå, Tampere and Cologne. You can also visit zazen.se to read more about our organisation and order items from our webshop.
