ZEN MEDITATION RETREAT
The zen meditation retreat is a seven day retreat, where we reexamine the true self. You are welcome to stay the whole week or a few days or just visit to have a tea as it suits you. The templegates are always open! The meditation retreat starts monthly every first Friday at 15 o'clock and ends Thursday at 15 o'clock.
Gold is tested by fire, a jewel is tested by a stone,
water is tested with a pole, a person is tested by his word.
Walking, I reach the place where streams run out;
sitting, I see the moment when the clouds arise.
Zen Monk M. 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 M. 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.
Zen Monk A. Lafon
Zen Monk A. Lafon has lived for years as Digital Nomad with only a backpack. After many years of formal daily Zen practice and an ordination in 2011, he joined Insopor Zen Academy in 2015. He is currently the abbot of the Lambda Zen Temple in Glarus.
He also works as a lecturer at ZHAW School of Engineering and builds software products at his company 200ok GmbH to facilitate digital education.
