SAZEN  Sauna ✖️Zazen

Is there a synergistic effect of combining sauna and zazen?

Sazen is a zazen meditation followed by a tent sauna on the temple grounds.
By calming the mind through zazen and listening to the sermon of the abbot, one’s mind and self can be put in a flat state.

The tent sauna is a good time to reflect on the Zen “way of life” by itself, but by entering the sauna with a flat mind, and conversing and interacting with other participants, you can discover new ways to build and maintain relationships with others.

Such a thing is one of the advantages of SaZen.

  • Tired of daily busyness
  • People who want to be healed
  • People who like sauna

These people are sure to experience the best day of their lives.
