The Rinzai Zen Community (http://www.rinzaizen.org) will conduct its annual summer sesshin in Germany, Thursday evening 8/29 through Sunday morning 9/1. The venue is the Kapuzinerhof in Laufen, a restored 17th century Capuchin monastery. Salzburg is a conveniently close airport.
This sesshin is geared toward beginners, and so is ideal for those who haven't attended a sesshin before. Participants stay on-site and must attend the entire practice period.
Please email to email@example.com if you're interested in coming.
