Zen Dojo Zürich

Zen Dojo Zurich is offering zazen at the following times, to sit ‚together-alone.‘ Together, but Ishin Denshin, each one of us connected with the heart-mind.
Lots of zazen together with lots of coal make a stronger, warmer and brighter fire, beyond space and time, and is the best antivirus.

 Sitting in stillness transforms hearts into mirrors that do not hold on to anything. If we awaken ourselves to this consciousness, all realms are images in our mirror: what comes does not stick to us, what goes does not leave a trace.

Han Shan

Practising zazen in our disorientated times means returning to the true dimension of being human and finding the underlying balance of your existence once more.

If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.

Because of the Covid/19 virus pandemic no public events take place at the Zen Dojo Zurich, according to the directives of the Federal Office of Public Health. 
Therefore, the sesshin from 27–29 March 2020 cannot take place. (Possible new dates around Ascension Day in May)
Next introduction to zazen on Sat, 24 April 2020 at 2pm. 
 
Zen Dojo Zurich Muijoji is offering zazen at the following times, to sit 'together-alone'. Together, but each one of us separately at home – Ishin Denshin, all connected through the heart-mind.
Lots of zazen together like lots of coal make a stronger, warmer and brighter fire, beyond space and time. That is the best antivirus.
 
Mon-Fri at 7.00am for 50' 
Mon-Fri at 6.30pm for 30' 
Sat at 10.00am for 50'
 
After zazen, we recite the Shiguseiganmon once.
 
The information on our website is being updated regularly and we are staying in contact – via our website, email, and other communication channels.
 

Mujō is the real condition of our being. Therefore, in these turbulent times, sit in zazen again and again, do not move and let yourself not be moved.

As Kodo Sawaki says: The crane who serenely flaps his wings does not talk about 'peace of mind' but also does not complain about 'trials and tribulations.' He flies neither towards anything nor away from anything. 

We wish you all the best, a cheerful heart, and good health.
