Created on 27th Feb 2004, the objective of the Ten Bō Rin Association is to allow “setting in motion the Wheel of the Dharma” in our lives. It’s an ambitious goal but it is profoundly human, since it is from the practise of zazen that we develop a spirit of non-profit, free from selfishness, which strengthens our faith and allows us to actively engage in benevolent relationships which aid and facilitate an openess with others.
The Ten Bō Rin Association organises and proposes:
- sesshins or longer sessions in the Soto Zen Tradition
- Fuse Weeks at la Gendronnière or in dojos,
- Teaching sessions on topics surrounding the Buddhist tradition of Soto Zen.
- sessions of activities related to practice (correct food preparation/choice, voice and singing, calligraphy, etc. …)
Membership fees are €20 per calendar year from 1 Jan – 31 Dec
