Embracing the world. Progressive.
Polenski sees his mission in using Zen to support people to unfold their full potential and thus be able to act more wholesomely and effectively for themselves and for others in the world.
Daishin Zen. The way of the heart.
To give all people with their individual needs the possibility to go the Zen way, Daishin Zen has different didactic core areas. At the same time it always remains firmly connected with the tradition of the Japanese Rinzai Zen.
Zen is the foundation. The way into the world.
Zen is independent of religions, ideologies, and scriptures, a path of personal development and the unfolding of potential, or a path to self- knowledge.
Daishin Zen emphasizes the development of an own personal sustainable practice, which has an effect beyond the meditation mat and thus also serves as a foundation in daily life.
Zen Monastery Buchenberg
The home of Daishin Zen. A place of power, silence, and peace. A place of meeting others and oneself.
Hinnerk Polenski and the Zen Monastery Buchenberg are looking forward to your questions, ideas and feedback.
