  • Eighth Annual Springbrook Winter Zen Sesshin

    Saturday June 23rd to Saturday June 30th 2018
    Organised and run by Open Way Zen Brisbane Sangha

    Please join us in the cold and crisp air up on the Springbrook plateau for Open Way Zen’s eighth winter Sesshin to be held at Springbrook from Saturday June 23rd to Saturday June 30th 2018. The retreat will be led by Peter Genjo Bruza, one of Open Way Zen's senior teachers, and long time student of Open Way Zen's founding teacher, Zen master Hogen Yamahata.

    Springbrook can be cold in June, therefore the schedule will focus on zazen (seated meditation) and kinhin (walking meditation). In addition, to meditation practice, there will be work periods (samu), sutra chanting, Dharma talks, as well as breaks for free time.

    For full details please choose from the links below:

    Cost is $750 which covers all food and accomodation.
    Places are limited, early enrollment will ensure you don't miss out.
