Zazen Meditation Experience

座禅・瞑想体験(平泉町)

Zazen meditation, which is gaining international popularity, is a common Buddhist practice, not just for Zen Buddhists. Take a moment away from today’s busy life to stop and reset your mind, paying attention to your posture, breathing, and mind. Meditate in the serene Motsuji or Chusonji, both of which are aiming to be inscribed on the World Heritage List. There are other temples where you can try zazen, so contact and ask if you are interested.
