Online Zen-evening with talk by Zen Master Zensho

Twice a month, the Zen Center Tao Chan in Wiesbaden organises an online Zen-evening with a recorded talk by Zen Master Zensho. Guests are welcome to attend. There is also the opportunity to pass personal questions on for the master. Each meeting takes place using the free Zoom software.

Regardless of previous knowledge and religious affiliation, the Zen evening can be an inspiring spiritual experience for everyone. The Zen meditation gives us an opportunity to see into the profound, fundamental nature of our true essence.

The Zen evening begins with an introduction to Zen meditation by our authorised Zen instructors. These are students of the master who have been with him for many years. During the introduction, posture, breathing and the state of awareness required during both sitting and walking meditation are thoroughly explained live via webcam.

The introduction is particularly helpful for beginners and those who are participating for the first time. It is a good idea to have a webcam available so that the Zen instructors can give a good introduction to the meditation method and also correct the posture if required. Any questions that arise will be dealt with right away.

Once the introduction is completed, the main part of the Zen evening begins. This comprises of two periods of sitting meditation (each ca. 20 minutes) and one of walking meditation (kinhin, ca. 10 minutes), all accompanied live by the Zen instructors.

The real highlight of the Zen evening is the video lecture by Zensho (ca. 45 minutes, in German). This lecture is only available here, during the Zen evening. In these lectures we experience the boundless love and spiritual force that only an enlightened master can convey.

Even during Corona times, there is the possibility for participants of the Zen evening to contact the master and ask their (short) questions. These questions can be submitted by mail. Here, it is good to include a photo of oneself, plus name and address.
