Time & Location

Hinotori An, Kinkelstrasse 10, 8006 Zürich, Switzerland

About The Event

A sudden awakening is associated with a complete dissolution of the self. The death of self is an "experience" that will change a person's life forever. In contrast to the death of the Ego, which initiates a more intense exploration of the soul, self-reflection and the search for a deeper meaning and purpose of existence, the death of the self transcends all boundaries, enabling the comprehensive realization of Reality and the immediate absorption of all answers.

Seshin is performed in silence and includes zazen, kinhin and mondo.


  • Registration - no entry without prior registration
  • Punctuality - arrive 10 - 15' before the start of the practice to prepare in peace; the door is locked 5' before the start of the Sesshin and late practitioners cannot enter
  • Skillful communication – silence at all times, no idle talk, posing questions only during Mondo, or after Sesshin
  • Clean socks - prepare clean socks for the Zendo; it is not allowed to walk on the tatami with bare feet, in shoes or with dirty socks (unlike the usual Zendo where one practices barefoot, the Zendo in Hinotori An follows the rules of the Chado room to protect the tatami floor)
  • Attire - to ensure painless sitting and preserve the atmosphere of a temple, attire should be loose-fitting (no jeans, or leather pants), in calm colors (preferable dark); not visually distracting (no short skirts, shorts, bermuda and tank tops - regardless of gender); watches and jingling jewelry must be removed; strong smells must be avoided.
  • Mobile phones - need to be turned off completely or set on Airplane Mode (Silent Mode is also not allowed)
