Head Dharma Teacher, Zen Center Regensburg

The Zen Day at Zen Center Regensburg is a wonderful opportunity to have a simple introduction to the practice of Zen in a short retreat setting. Beginners to our Community can get to know our Zen Center forms and style with an experienced Zen practitioner who has completed five of the traditional 90-day retreats (“ango”) in the mountains of Korea. Although the Zen Day is a one-day program, it is optional to spend an overnight at our Zen Center for a first impression of Zen and / or a refresher of your practise. 

Begin / End:  Saturday, 8.00 am to Sunday, 8.30 am

In 2023, we offer the Zen Day once a month (in the months from June to October).
Check the Events Calender above to find the dates.

Introduction to Zen

We offer regular introduction to the Zen Practise at Zen Center Regensburg e.V. This introduction class is recommended for all beginners to the practice.

Zoom Hookup w/ Hyon Gak Sunim

Once a month, on the first Tuesday evening (@ 8:00pm Regensburg Time) of the month, Hyon Gak Sunim is in front of the camera for you. Bring your questions and challenges in practice. Bring a friend! It’s free, and no membership is required. (But you ARE welcome to send us a small donation for having access to him during this rare chance that an experienced long-term meditator like him sits there just WAITING to help with your practice.)

Please sign up in the calendar (top of this page) in order to receive a Zoom link to this special opportunity.
