Introductory retreat in Swedish

Every year, we offer two retreats suited to complete beginners, one in English and one in Swedish. Participants will learn everything they need to know to get started with their Zen practice. The Swedish retreat will run from 18 to 21 July and be led by Kanja Odland Roshi this year. Members can apply online. Please email zendoleader@zentraining.org for details.
