Zen Meditation, or 'Zazen', is a traditional art of contemplation with roots in the Eastern philosophies of Buddhism and Taoism. Guided movement practices (Qigong) and immersion in tradtional practices followed in Zen monasteries create a potent and positive atmosphere, where we find access to our pure original life-energy, which has its source within us. Through centering and experiencing simple meditation techniques, we can clearly distinguish the flowing energy in our bodies and activate our regenerative and self-healing powers. Experiences and stories from the monastery, and descriptions of encounters with the Zen Master are offered as philosophical background.
