Share with us our Practice following the Teachings of Zen Master Seung Sahn

We tend to see body, breath, and mind separately, but in meditation they become one. The first thing to pay attention to is the body position during sitting. How you position your body has a lot to do with what happens with your mind and your breath. As our School comes from an Asian tradition, the basic meditation posture is to sit on a mat and cushion on the floor. For Westerners who are used to sitting in chairs, this can often cause discomfort. For this reason, our School allows for many variations to help students find a stable and comfortable posture for sitting meditation. There is absolutely no esoteric significance to the different positions. What is most important in sitting meditation is what we call mind sitting, rather than body sitting—how do we keep our mind just now? In order to do that, a good posture is useful and supports our practice. Saturday practice starts with 40 minutes of chanting and then two 30 minute sitting meditation sessions followed by tea together. What to bring: Wear comfortable clothes of non-bright, muted color. Please arrive 10 minutes before the Practice starts. Important to know No fee required. Voluntary donations support these activities.

Experience Zen Practice following Zen Master Seung Sahn´s Tradition

Beginners must have been completed the introductory course before atending to practice on Mondays. Beginners are welcome to join on Thursdays. Mind-sitting means keeping a not-moving mind in our everyday life situation. What are you doing right now? In each moment, just let go of your opinion, condition and situation. Then you become clear. When you are doing something, just do it. This is everyday Zen. When we return to clarity in this moment, we can help ourselves and others. In the Kwan Um School of Zen, we call that great love, great compassion and the Great Bodhisattva Way. For all of us, the teaching of great love, great compassion and the Great Bodhisattva Way is very important. By doing Zen meditation to become clear, we can see our correct situation, our correct relationship and then act accordingly for the benefit of ourselves and all beings. Monday practice starts with 45 minutes of chanting and then two 35 minute sitting meditation sessions followed by tea together. What to bring: Wear comfortable clothes of non-bright, muted color. Please arrive 10 minutes before the Practice starts. Important to know No fee required. Voluntary donations support these activities.

Zen Meditation. Beginners day!

Zen Zentrum Wien

Meditation in Zen means keeping don't-know mind when bowing, chanting and sitting Zen. This is formal Zen practice. And when doing something, just do it. When driving, just drive; when eating, just eat; when working, just work. Your don't-know mind will become clear. Then you can see the sky, only blue. You can see the tree, only green. Your mind is like a clear mirror. Red comes, the mirror is red; white comes the mirror is white. A hungry person comes, you can give him food; a thirsty person comes, you can give her something to drink. There is no desire for myself, only for all beings. That mind is already enlightenment, what we call Great Love, Great Compassion, the Great Bodhisattva Way. It's very simple, not difficult! Thursday practice starts with 15 minutes of chanting and then two 30 minute sitting meditation sessions followed by tea together. What to bring: Wear comfortable clothes of non-bright, muted color. Please arrive 10 minutes before the Practice starts. Important to know No fee required. Voluntary donations support these activities.
