Wednesday Evening Zazen

On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights, you can meditate under the guidance of a regular teacher. On Wednesday the main language is English. As a rule, we sit for two periods of half an hour with walking meditation in between. After the sitting periods, there is a short service and a dharma talk. On the last evening of the month, we sit for three periods followed by a tea ceremony. It is possible to have a personal interview with the teacher (daisan).

If you have any questions, you can contact contact Marieke Virya Sensei.
