MOUNTAINWEEK - INTENSIVE ZEN RETREAT
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 (january) and a summer (august) Intensive Zen Retreat. You are welcome to the intensive Zen Retreat to stay the whole week (newcomers) or just a few days as it suits you.
Seven days count as one!
Zen Monk Abbot Reding
In the year 2016 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 Brother Marcel 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.
