Teacher: Knud Rosenmayr JDPSN.

Start: 07:00

Zen Days are short retreats that allow us to deepen our practice and come back to our breath. We look through our habitual thought patterns and find the source of our deepest wisdom and compassion.

This (hybrid) Zen Day will take place at the Zen Center as well as via Zoom. – Please register soon so we can plan!

Beginners are warmly welcome!

“Most of our retreats are relatively short: one, two, or three days, or perhaps three months. But Buddha practiced very hard for six years and Bodhidharma sat for nine years in a cave above Shao Lin Temple. How can we possibly attain what they have? It’s very simple: At this moment, just apply yourself with sincere effort in asking this question: What am I? That means investigating closely. That means cutting off all thinking — waking up from your like and dislike dream. At that point, you and Buddha and Bodhidharma become one.” (Zen Master Dae Kwang)
