Welcome to the European Zen page for the Bay Zen Center. We are no longer offering retreats in Europe. If you are interested in our offerings in the US, please visit our Zen center's website at bayzen.org.
...the purpose of...practice is not to fix ourselves, but to find real freedom to engage in life, realizing clearly that all that we think we are, all that we believe we must have, and all that we strive for is only an illusion, part of a self-centered dream. Each and everyone one of us can know this, if we are willing to stumble around in the muddy water of our desires and discover the clarity of an open heart. Diane Rizzetto, "Waking Up to What You Do"
