regain the power   from the community 



(secular practice) 


Experience  harmonization  collective  

  Return to the essence of our nature  by living together  , receive life in  the seat   empty bowl.  Experience the simple and joyful life  which unfolds around zazen.


Whether for a weekend or a  week, these practice times   allow you to activate the 3 jewels of  our practice: our awakened deep nature, the reality as  what  is and the community. A  trinity which is practiced in a rather secular form  and  in respect of  the zen tradition   Soto (of   community of mountains and clouds).

retirement  of the community of the Mountain and the clouds  

  (monastic practice)


August 2 to 8, 2020 

Under the benevolence of Pierre Taigu Tulur sensei there are 8  sanghas that spread the practice of just receiving around the world. Valerie Dai Hatsu is a disciple of Pierre Taigu Turlur and the tenzo of these retreats. 



During the annual retreat of the order or within the framework of meetings between sanghas, Valérie Dai Hatsu  manages the practice of cooking and thus offers practitioners  of the way of the tenzo to plunge into the fire of deep cooking.
