Zen und Kontemplation

Hold on, where are you running away? Heaven is within you! Are you looking for God elsewhere, I miss him and. (Angelus Silesius)

Detachment from the desires, Care, Anxiety and aggression, which we occupy, and opening to the innermost being - that is what the practice of Zen, as developed in Buddhism in China and Japan, as well as on the Christian way of contemplation in Europe. In this way deepen the reading of Scripture, Prayer and celebration of the sacraments in the silent experience of God's presence.

Participants are instructed to sit in silence, as it is practiced in Zen. The exercise of this practice exists in two sessions 20 Minutes and two rounds of five-minute walk. Each evening will begin with a short lecture and concluded with the reading of a text from the Christian mystics. Then there is the possibility for a post-performance discussion.
