Beside zazen, the Brussels dojo organizes several other activities. Dates can be found on the agenda.
One of the traditional practises of soto zen is the sewing of the rakusu and of the kesa. The kesa is a dark piece of clothing, like a gown, worn by the monk to practise zazen. It is made of pieces fitted together following a rice field pattern.
The workshop is free of charge and open to all practionners. Every Thusday from 2pm till 5pm and once Sunday per month (see agenda).
