Center activities
Where we are

At the center l'Arco, we practice Zen according to the teachings of the Soto School as established at the San Francisco Zen Center founded by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi (author of the famous book Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind).

The core of our activity is sitting meditation or zazen. Besides zazen, we also practise walking meditation or kinhin and the chanting of traditional texts or sutras.

We also study the doctrine itself as well as Buddhist philosophy in general and several practices traditionally related to Zen, such as the Tea Ceremony, the Meal Ceremony and the sewing of the Buddha's robe.

We also organize retreats or sesshin, of one or more days, both in town and in the countryside.
