QUESTIONS to the Head Dharma Teacher:


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.

Tea of Zen

A monk once asked Chinese Zen Master Zhaozhou, “What is Buddha?”
Zhaozhou answered, “Go drink tea!”
The monk then asked, “What is Dharma?”
Zhaozhou answered, “Go drink tea!”
The monk persisted, “What is Sangha?”
Zhaozhou again said, “Go drink tea!”

Drinking tea is a wonderful practice to reflect our present mind. Whoever is interested to practice Zen by drinking tea together is welcome to join. It is also great opportunity to ask questions to our Head Dharma Teacher about Zen practice and connect with the sangha.

Meditative Painting

We offer regular Meditative Painting Sessions at Zen Center Regensburg e.V. Meditative Painting is a wonderful and creative way to connect to your Inner in the quiet space of our beautiful Dharma Room with a sangha of friends.

Meditative painting involves using painting as a form of meditation or mindfulness practice. By focusing on the act of painting, one can become fully present in the moment and let go of distracting thoughts and worries. The process of meditative painting can be calming and therapeutic, and it has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety levels. It can also help improve concentration and focus, enhance creativity, and provide a sense of relaxation and inner peace.

Meditative painting can be practiced by anyone, regardless of artistic ability or experience, as it is more about the process than the end result.
