THE ZEN HERMITAGE

Life and death are the great matter. Be watchful of your time. All is impermanent and passes swiftly away. Time waits for no one.

Welcome to the templestay at the Eremita Zen Temple in Einsiedeln. A small place (max. 5 Persons) for contemplating on the true self through a very simple hermitagelike life-style. Only through your determined and thorough examination of body and mind, worth and harmony can be formed.

You and everyone with sincere intention is welcome to come and to leave anytime. You are welcome to stay months, weeks, a few days, some hours or just visit to have a coffee as it suits you. The templegates are always open!

HEADMONK

Zen Monk Marcel Reding

In the year 2015 we opened the gates to the public. After ten years of continuous reexamination of the words and actions of the wise and holy Ones in japanese and south-korean zen monasteries, Zen Monk Marcel Reding founded, in mutual reliance with the clergy and laity, the Insopor Zen Academy in Switzerland in 2014.

He absolved a pilgrimage through Japan (3000 miles) doing traditional almsround as a way of thanks for the ten-year training as a zen monk.

As founder and head monk he is in charge of the Honora Zen monastery in Reichenburg and the Eremita Zen temple in Einsiedeln.
