Tetsugyuji International Zen Temple in Oita Prefecture usually holds intensive beginners retreats once or twice a year. The Head Abbot of Tetsugyuji is Reverend Paul Tesshin Silverman,  because of the Corona Virus situation he is unable to come to Oita from New York to hold this special retreat in English. We strongly encourage you to participate in virtual zazen (Meditation) though with his New York based sangha, Yorktown Zen. (www.yorktownzen.org) Go to that website for a more detailed schedule and Zoom link for the meetings.


We look forward to meeting with you in Oita Japan at Tetsugyuji Temple soon.
