On June 6th and 7th we organized our first “Zen and nature” event in 2014.

 After Zazen in the evening and at Zazen at the morning we walked in an area where orchids and many rare animals are protected – an area near Trier. The weather conditions were a little unusual : sun, rain, hail - but nobody lost motivation.

At first we hiked in silence to observe phenomena in nature in a state of concentration and mindfulness. During a rest period each participant said what he had seen, heard, smelt and felt. Some participants picked plants (not orchids), which we identified. We spoke about the ecology of these plants and their benefit to humans. Happy but wet, we finished this activity.
