Seven days count as one!

The training week commemorating enlightenment. Through these seven days we rarely leave the meditating posture, even to lie down. The activities of the week consist entirely of meditation. There will be a winter and a summer Intensive Zen Retreat. You are welcome to stay the whole week or just a few days as it suits you. The templegates are always open!


We take a deep breath and ponder the imponderable. Sit relaxed and penetrate the deep of the deepness. When it is painful, just slowly and quietly relax your limbs or stand up walk a bit and then sit down again.


NEED TO READ BEFORE YOUR STAY. We eat what will be served (vegetables, meat, fish, etc.) The Zen temple etiquette gives a framework to consciously carry out and process your own words and actions. They intend to make human coexistence smooth and pleasant.


Here you will find the most important questions and answers about templestay, the Zen Academy and Zen temples.
