What is ZEN meditation?

A practice beyond ideologies

Zen is an ideological neutral practice of concentration or “meditation”, which comes from Japanese and Chinese ZEN Buddhism. Zen is a method or technique of concentration, at the same time it is a specific way of spiritual realization. 

Sitting in open awareness  

Sitting meditation, which we call ZAZEN, means to learn to sit upright with the body in stillness and concentrate on the breath. We can sit on a cushion, a footstool or a chair.

Zen is not commercial

ZEN is practised in a volunteer community of likeminded people who together help organise and maintain the ZENDO (meditation space) where the teaching and meditation takes place. 

Teacher and Sangha

In ZEN there are no gurus. Zen teachers and Zen students are all eternal beginners and learners.

»ZEN mind is beginners mind« 

The community of practitioners is called the SANGHA.
