Autumn ango starts 23 October and continues until just before Rohatsu sesshin. More sitting, more free time, less work. This is a great time to come for a few days or weeks of training.
The annual Rohatsu 7-day sesshin will be led by Sante Roshi and starts on 1 December. The closing date for applications has passed, so please email if you would like to apply late.
New Year's retreat
The New Year’s retreat is only for members. It starts at 14.00 on the
29th and ends with brunch on the first. The schedule will be similar
to the summer retreat. There will be a New Year’s Eve ceremony
culminating in Jukai (taking of Buddhist precepts) after the stroke of
midnight. Please apply by 20 November.
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.
Members are welcome to apply for any of our events: see the sidebar for upcoming events, or click here for a pdf of the full calendar for the year.
If you are not a member, but are interested in Zen, you can contact any of our city centers about attending one of their regular introductions to Zen. If you live far away from any of our city centers, you can contact us to discuss how to get started.
