MEDITATION IN THE SIHLFELD CEMETERY - ZURICH

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. The cemetery forum (Friedhof Forum) of the city of Zurich and the Zen Academy invited in September 2017 for the first time open meditation in the cemetery Sihlfeld. That was well received and therefore continues. The evening offers the opportunity to get to know a special meditation in a special place or to enjoy it once more.

The meditations take place in spring and autumn.

Date
12th September 2019 (Thursday)
Attention: The event takes place in all weather conditions. When it rains, the meditation will take place in the old crematorium.
