We propose you to come and practice zazen online with us, using "zoom" application. This software is free for you and it allow to connect up to 50 persons, with a good image quality and sound. Practicing together keeps up the regularity. Because you know that a Zen master is checking on your posture, it motivates you to keep it right. The morning Zazen is the one that make your day, it's the Zazen of the sincere practitioner.

“The Zen is Zazen” was sentence frequently pronounced by the Zen Master Taisen Deshimaru.
