One-Day Zen Retreat

Information: While the daily practice at Lambda Zen temple continues, because of the Corona regulation of the government, the one-day retreats are not open to the public. If you want to stay informed, come back to this page or write to us an email. In the meantime, the monthly one-week retreat at the Honora Zen Monastery in Reichenburg continue to be partially open to the public.

On the third weekend of every month, we hold a one day Zen retreat. During the retreat, we re-examine life and death.

Retreat program:

  • 10:00am: Sitting Meditation
  • 11:45am: Working Meditation, preparation for lunch
  • ca. 12:30pm: Lunch, tea
  • 01:30pm: Cleaning dishes
  • 01:45pm: Walking Meditation (short hike in the mountains of Glarus) or Working Meditation (i.e. in the temple garden)
  • 04:15pm: Sitting Meditation
  • 05:00pm: End

Please contact us at least two days in advance: contact form. It is also possible to join only for the morning or evening meditation periods. Please say so in your RSVP if you will not attend for lunch!


We will eat what will be served. The Zen temple etiquette gives a framework to consciously carry out and process your own words and actions. They intend to make human coexistence smooth and pleasant. Because the life at the Zen temple is completely supported by donations (food, all items and money), we do not waste anything.
