An ancient Zen master called Zen the posture of ease and joy.
We will engage in sitting meditation (zazen), walking meditation (kinhin), and mindful activity throughout our days of practicing together. Through sensing our bodies and breath, we reconnect with our innermost core of ease and joy.
In addition we will listen to and discuss Zen teachings. Those who like can meet for a private interview with the teacher.
There are now flights to Kalamata Airport, a mere 30 minutes from Zen Rocks, from many European cities on a daily basis. We can help you look at flights from specific cities, like Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, or Frankfurt. The great news is that these flights are now very affordable. There are also flights to Athens and we have a shuttle service to fetch you at the airport.
