Grüezi for a part-time templestay in the Zen monastery. You can do your regular work during the temple stay!

Your determined and complete examination of body and mind creates value and harmony. "Exercise in motion" and "Exercise in silence" are equally valued. Work is a good opportunity to meditate and to know the true self.  Please note that the part-time stay is mentally and physically very demanding.

Before a templestay, a 7 day retreat is mandatory.
