Zen Days are short retreats that give us an opportunity 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 joint (hybrid) Zen Day of the Vienna Zen Center and the Bratislava Zen Center will take place at the Vienna Zen Center, the Bratislava Zen Center, and via Zoom.

Beginners are warmly welcome!

“Actually, 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 cut off all thinking — wake up from your like and dislike dream. At that point, you and Buddha and Bodhidharma become one.” (Zen Master Dae Kwang)
