DIGITAL NOMAD - SWITZERLAND
As a digital nomad you can meditate and work at the zen temple. Welcome to the templestay program for digital nomads. The Lambda Zen Temple is a place for contemplating on the true self through a very simple hermitage-like lifestyle. Only through your determined and thorough examination of body and mind, worth and harmony can be formed.
It is the first Zen temple for developers and Zen practitioners who are interested in a longterm templestay program connected to IT activities. The morning and evening meditation is the same as in all the Zen Temples, but the daily modules are especially work on software projects. Our purpose is to awaken each and everyone's true nature and to share compassion with the community. The Great Way is gateless, approached in a thousand ways. Once past this checkpoint you stride through the universe.

Zen Monk Abbot Alain M. Lafon
I have formally trained for 10 years under the venerable teachers Zen Monk Shō-Kan and Zen Monk Masan Doam. This training included stringent monastic practice, a strict daily meditation routine, conducting monthly 7-day retreats, ceremonies, pilgrimages, study trips to Korea and Japan, as well as co-financing and co-building two Zen Temples lead by my teachers.
Now, this work is complete. As thanks to my teachers and to pay their kindness forward, I have opened Lambda Zen Temple to the public for daily practice. From the deepest heart I bow and thank all my teachers, free from east and west.
He also works as a lecturer at ZHAW School of Engineering and builds software products at his company 200ok GmbH to facilitate digital education.
Monika Bieri has lived in Shogen Dojo for a good year and has lead the daily meditation and facilitated regular retreats. In 2015, she joined the Zen Academy and continued to lead daily meditation as well as facilitating regular retreats.
