The morning Zazen is the one that make your day, it's the Zazen of the sincere practitioner.

Every 1st Saturday of the month at 11h pm (UTC +2), just before the zazen, a space is open to let you discover zen practice. For those that have just started to practice it may also be the opportunity to review the essential points of the physical posture, the breathing, the state of mind and kinhin.
