Summer Retreat

DATES: August 22 – 29, 2021

Meet yourself and the world anew at our annual Zen meditation retreat led by Roshi Amy (Tu es cela) Hollowell. During this retreat, Roshi Amy is delighted to be giving dharma transmission for the first time, to Joa (Celui qui sauve) Scetbon, in the presence of Roshi Catherine Genno Pagès, her teacher. The recognition of a new dharma successor is a rare and important event for our sangha and for the lineage. Don’t miss it!


We are fortunate to be holding this retreat at the beautiful Château de Magny-en-Morvan, in Burgundy.

The château can be reached from Paris in 3 hours by car, in 1.5 hours by fast TGV train, and in about 4 hours by regular TER train. More transportation details and arrangements will be available upon registration.

Please note: Given the unstable pandemic situation, and in keeping with governmental regulations, retreat attendance may need to be reduced or the retreat may have to be canceled. We will keep you posted as the date approaches.
