Open Zen-evening with Zensho

Lecture - Encounter - Meditation

Twice a month, the Zen Center Tao Chan in Wiesbaden organises an open Zen-evening under the instruction of Zen Master Zensho W. Kopp.

It is a time of intensive Zen practice and the direct encounter with an accomplished master.

During a Zen-evening with Zensho, we experience that sympathetic love and spiritual force which can only be felt in the direct presence of an enlightened master.

After four periods of sitting and walking meditation there follows a lecture by Zensho which lasts about one hour.
