We need your support for our society!

The nonprofitmaking society, Tao Chan Center e.V., founded in 1993 is supported by its members and runs the Tao Chan Zen Center in Wiesbaden.

The intention of the society is to foster, develop, and make public the ancient Chinese teachings of wisdom of Tao Chan. Tao Chan is a school of Zen Buddhism whose main concern is the attainment of self-knowledge and self-realisation in mankind. Its goal is the dissolution of human suffering through spiritual realisation. It therefore fosters dignity, equality, and freedom for all, regardless of nationality, skin colour, or religion.

In this way it promotes and deepens a peaceful dialogue between religions, for example between Christian mysticism and eastern spirituality, and accentuates the common ground between religions.

The society’s practical work takes its form in weekly meditation practise. Once a month, on a weekend, a meditation seminar takes place under the instruction of Zen Master Zensho.
