Meditation can help to cope better with the changing situations in the lockdown. In order to offer newcomers the opportunity to get to know our form of practice and to participate in our online Zen exercises and events, despite our currently closed centres and groups, we invite you to this introduction. Since beginners would continue to be on their own after the introduction, we offer follow-up support by mentors who will be available to anyone interested in the next few weeks as contact persons for questions about Zen practice and meditation. Experienced Dharma teachers and Zen practitioners – Elisa, Martin, Gisla, Michael, Ronny, Sascha – are available as mentors and you can contact them.
