Hokuozan Sogenji Zen Monastery

Birkenweg 1

27330 Asendorf




Shodo Harada Roshi comes regularily to his monastery Hokuozan and guides his students in practice. Once a year a Samu Sesshin is held, during which many maintenance projects are being cared for. 
Before joining for an Osesshin, one needs to practice with one of the European groups or participate in a zoom sesshin

Zoom Sesshin

During these sesshins we connect via zoom with the main monastery Sogenji in Japan, and thus are able to listen to the teishos (lectures) given by Harada Roshi and recieve sanzen (individual guidance). 

This sesshin takes place in Hokuozan Germany and is also suited for beginners.

Sesshin in different countries

There are many ODZ Zendos all over Europe as you can see in the community section, where regular practice is being offered. There you can join also as a beginner to get to know the basics of Zen practice.
