A Day Of Zen
October 5th 8:45 am – 5 pm

Come join us for a day of Zen practice, when a small group of monks and nuns from the German Zen Association visit Aarhus in order to introduce the wonderful practice of Zen-meditation. 


Zen is a Japanese form of buddhism, focusing on the practice of meditation — or as the zen-insiders would say; “just sitting”. 

When “just sitting” we let go of unnecessary habits and  ambitions; we stop trying to be something that we are not, and instead aim at just being ourselves. 

It is exactly as challenging as it sounds, but less so with the proper instructions and when practiced in a group. 

If you are interested in letting go and just being, if you want to spend a day meditating with experienced practitioners, and maybe get some answers and some guidelines for practicing meditation at home – come join us in Beder on the 5th of october for a day of Zen practice

Teachings will be in simple and easily understandable english. 

The day will consist of:
* A practical introduction to Zen meditation (zaren)
* Sitting- and walking meditation
* Preparation of lunch and snacks
* Questions and answers.

Please note: There will be a lot of sitting (!) When you sign up, please let us know, if you want to sit on the floor or on a chair.You do not need to bring your own meditation cushion.

Please wear comfortable, dark clothes.
