You would like to live in our Zen Center for a while and dedicate yourself to an intense daily Zen practice? We practice Zen together every morning and on Tuesdays and Fridays in the evening as well. Apart from that you can follow your daily routine of studying at university, working in your normal job etc.
The Berlin Zen Center can host up to 5 resident Zen Students. The residents commit to joining morning practice (5.30am – 7.15am, Monday till Friday) and evening practice twice a week (Tuesday and Friday). They also participate in weekend retreats.
The Center is located directly in the city with good transport connection and many shopping facilities. The residents clean the Zen Center regularly.
The guiding teacher of the Berlin Zen Center, Zen Master Gu Ja, does not live in the Zen Center but attends evening practice regularly. Kongan teaching with Zen Master Gu Ja or another teacher takes place every alternate Wednesday and Friday.
