Is there anything I have to bring/know?
Our practice is open to anyone, beginners included. If you don’t have any zazen experience yet, we kindly ask you to come a few minutes earlier so we can assist you.
We meet roughly 15 minutes in advance, no special clothing required, but it should be comfortable and dark colors are appreciated.
Our practice dialogue also does not require any prior knowledge.
ZEN is an open, interdenominational tradition that welcomes anyone who is interested. You neither have to declare any faith nor convert to anything to practice Zen, no alterations to your personal beliefs or religious affiliations need be made. There is no dogma and there are no fixed beliefs. We only ask you to follow the rules that are in effect during our shared practice.
