Shugendō (修験道) is a 1400+ year-old syncretic tradition of training and testing characterised by sādhanā, mountaineering-asceticism and periodic retreats centered on ritual death & rebirth.

The Koshikidake Shugen (甑嶽山) sect's root temple, Kannon-ji (観音寺), is located in Yamagata prefecture, Japan.  This is the branch-site of a practitioner and practice/study group located in Meanjin (Brisbane, Australia). 

This site aims to assist in making learning opportunities available and in translating practice material and commentaries for the school's internal use. For more information please contact us.
