Zen in Twente

At Zen in Twente, we organize ‘Meditation Monday’ every week. These are cost-free gatherings where we sit together in silence, practicing seated meditation (zazen) alternated with short walking meditations (kinhin).

Every two to three months, we organize a morning with a certified Zen teacher from the international Zen River monastery in Uithuizen. This includes guided meditation, a lecture, and a communal lunch. The essence of Buddhism and the practical practice of Zen are discussed. These meetings with a teacher are intended for both novice and more advanced meditation practitioners, as well as anyone interested in gaining inspiration and receiving practical meditation instruction.
