Wednesday Evening Zazen

On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night you can meditate under the guidance of a regular teacher. As a rule we sit two periods of half an hour with walking meditation in between. After the sitting periods there is a short service and a dharma talk. 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 questions you can contact Marieke Virya Sensei.
