Walking, I reach the place where streams run out; sitting, I see the moment when the clouds arise.
The zen meditation retreat is a seven day retreat, where we reexamine the true self. You are welcome to stay the whole week or a few days or just visit to have a tea as it suits you. The templegates are always open! The meditation retreat starts monthly every first Friday at 15 o'clock and ends Thursday at 15 o'clock.
Gold is tested by fire, a jewel is tested by a stone,
water is tested with a pole, a person is tested by his word.
Help us to offer a place for meditation and emptiness.
