Welcome to the Meditation St. Gallen. 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. The cemetery Feldli in St. Gallen was built in 1874 and expanded in 1956. The geometric style of the design contains characteristic motifs of French garden art from the 17th and 18th centuries. With the cooperation of Feldli Cemetery in St. Gallen, meditation was first held in 2019. 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.

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

Welcome to the open Meditation St. Gallen in the cemetery Feldli.
