DEEP ZEN: Meditation and Freediving Education


By the monk Kosho - Zen master (Deshimaru-Kosen lineage) - AIDA Freedive Instructor - 4x Depth Freediving National Record Holder for Switzerland (CWT, FIM, CWTB)



Loïc Vuillemin | Zen monk Kosho

Loïc Vuillemin (CH) from his birth name became the monk Kosho at age 20. Since then, intensive practice and spirit of service made him the dedicated person he is today. Certified Zen Master inside Deshimaru-Kosen lineage in 2013, he became, with the guidance of late Steven Keenan, an Aida freedive instructor in early 2017. Co-founder and keeper of Yujonyusanji temple during almost 10 years, Kosho has lately decided to walk again in the social world, acting as an authentic monk, freedive instructor and competition athlete. 

In 2019, Loïc registered 4 national records for Switzerland in the disciplines of CWT, CWTb & FIM with dives below 80m deep. He participated also to Swiss, Egyptian and World Championships. A strong, safe and charismatic freediver.

For Loïc, the practice of Zen meditation and freediving is the key to a deeper understanding and achievment... beyond even self.

The monk Kosho is also a loving husband and a caring father.


General Infos 


The practice of Freediving

The practice of Freediving triggers a deep improvement of your awareness: not only of what is happening to your body during the dive but also of how your mind handles it all. With practice, a fearless, centered and more focused version of yourself will appear. 
The process of reaching depth through freediving is intense, fast and life changing. But no need to push performances, depths are first a matter of harmony.
You want to experience Freediving the Zen way? You are the exact place for that :)

The practice of zen meditation

Zen meditation is based on posture, breath and state of mind. The posture is meant to be practiced sitting. The breath, charged of awareness, is carefully left to its own. The state of mind is free, without any grasp over illusions and thoughts. It's not this easy, it's not this difficult... it's just very simple discipline.

During zazen (aka zen meditation), the body and mind unite in one and only awareness... the self is abandoned, freed from judgment and open to observe the process of going beyond. Thus, practitioners are liberated from their self set limits and experience a deeper form of consciousness, more authentic.

Certainly the very best thing a human being can practice.

Where to find the monk Kosho?

Actually based in Sharm el Sheikh, you can find the monk Kosho in South Sinai peninsula, Egypt.

There, Kosho collaborate with local divecenters in both Sharm el Sheikh and Dahab for equipment rental and/or specific excursions allowing you to make sure to have what's needed for a great experience while freediving.

The monk Kosho has no steady dojo dedicated to deep zen practice yet. Retreats are held worldwide upon invitation or availability during travels.
