Divorce Ceremony


The divorce ceremony gives your divorce a clerical, formal and public frame to consciously carry out and process this important event. The ceremony itself enables you to rule off your divorce in a decent way.

Mountains and rivers are timeless, but host and guest are at every instant anew.

Celebrant zen monk Reding will guide you through the divorce ceremony.

On Site: Determine the location that is most suitable for you.

"Thou shalt! Thou shalt not!" is none of our business. We are politically and denominationally independent and are subject to the Swiss legislation. Please note the legal regulations concerning divorce (dissolving of the registered partnership and dissolving of the concubinage). Our zen monks and zen nuns give your ceremony a formal and public character and a blessing.


The ceremony is non-denominational. Members of all faiths are welcome.


Since there are no compulsory and complex rituals for the divorce ceremony, we will determine its sequences in accordance with your wishes.


  • We will recite the "Logos from the Heart".
  • To symbolize the transience of life and death, each of those present can burn a pinch of incense at the end of the ceremony.
  • For more specific information regarding duration of the ceremony, schedule, additional texts and speeches, we will gladly discuss it with you personally.
  • Please note that the number of participants does not matter.
