Everyone with a desire to learn more about Zen is welcome! Zen brought SILENCE to Posticum. Zen is a spiritual path, beyond dogma and philosophy.
“Zen is not a religion, Zen is not a school of philosophy, because it is not a theory. In fact the emphasis is on the order of life. What Zen teaches is precisely to be as broad as possible and as free as possible.”– Béla Hamvas
