EVENING ZEN RETREAT

Practicing silence does not mean to abound only spoken words. Quite your inner stories too. Disengage in mind’s monologs, dialogs or movie shows.  Just breathe.

HALF-DAY ZEN RETREAT

Short intensive zazen training for beginners and advanced. The morning offers a time of stillness and silence and is an excellent opportunity to explore and deepen the practice.
