MEDITATION BERN - CEMETERY BREMGARTENFRIEDHOF

The Great Way is gateless, approached in a thousand ways. Once past this checkpoint you stride through the universe.

For many people cemeteries are places with a meditative or even spiritual atmosphere. Novices and novices of Zen monasteries also seek out nightly cemeteries during their training in the hive to meditate there. In 2018, Bern was the first city in Switzerland to erect a burial ground for Buddhists at the Bremgarten Cemetery. The cemetery offers the opportunity to get to know a special kind of meditation in a special place.

The meditations take place in spring and autumn.
