SANNEJI, a traditional Zen centre, enables year-round zen training under the guidance of a zen teacher.

We practice zazen and chant. During work periods we clean, prepare food or carry out some other task assigned to us.

In addition to five one-week sesshins (zen retreats) per year, we also organize shorter sesshins as well as Buddhist ceremonies and other events.

Visitors are welcome to partake in Sanneji’s daily programme.
