Kessei at Egely Kloster Taikyoji offers you a unique chance for you to deepen your practice every single moment of your life and, through this, to realize your innate wisdom and experience the maturation of compassion. In order to get the most out of this intensive training, you must commit fully to the process, fully open and aware.
You will be expected to participate in all activities: meditation periods, ceremonies, work periods, formal meals, and dokusan. These activities form the framework in which we intensely and undisturbed can examine reality. Two sesshins are scheduled within kessei, and these give us also an opportunity to test the depth and clarity of our practice.
Daily program during kessei is:
5:30 morning service
6:30 zazen, dokusan
7:30 breakfast, morning meeting
18:30-21 evening ceremony zazen, dokusan
Sunday ends with informal lunch at 13

Included in kessei are a 7-day sesshin and a shorter sesshin.
Please contakt us for more information.
Here is a unique opportunity for deepening your zen practice with among other things daily dokusan with a recognized Rinzai zen master, Teisho, many hours of zazen.
