with Monk Seigaku



How to be zen in the city

Everyone loves nature. We all can be kind and peaceful there. However, it is not as simple to keep the serenity once we are back in town where we actually live and spend most of our time.

Japanese zen monk, Seigaku, who trained at Eiheiji, the head temple of Soto Zen Buddhism in Japan, moved to Berlin a few years ago, and has been practicing “how to apply zen wisdom to modern life.”

In our three-day workshop at our space transformed into a zen dojo, he show you the principle of zazen; “adjusting our body, breathing, and mind” by sitting, walking, and sleeping in zen.
