What is Kyol Che ?
“Kyol Che” is a traditional Korean zen meditation session held in temples and monasteries. The experience of a whole group immersed in silence, looking deeply into the inquiry into “Who am I?” can change your life forever. Meditation in Kwan Um School is a practice of the very essence of clear mind – training of concentration, wisdom and compassion – beyond any religion. Zen Master Seun Sahn said: “I don’t teach buddhism, I only teach don’t know”.
How to prepare ?
Please bring your sleeping bags, towels ,warm socks, which we use in the Dharma Room, loose trousers reaching your ankles for sitting meditation. All participants are obliged to arrive with valid medical insurance. Each retreat will provide more specific details. Safety measures regarding Covid-19 situation will be taken.
Why Join the Kyol Che ?
When we practice together, we learn from one another. Individual practice is important, but when we only practice individually, it is difficult to see our limitations and our karma, the karma of our mind. The sangha is like a mirror, in which you can easily see your limitations, the limits of your actions and your opinions.
If you read something about zen and buddhism make sure that your digestive system works correctly, because you must necessarily digest it. Only then wisdom can appear. Digestive system of mind works efficiently only when your don’t know is clear and meditation strong.
