Great weekend coming up for ‘Young Minds’ interested in buddhism and meditation! Zen River, a zen monastery in the North of the Netherlands organizes a special weekend for young people (15-30 yr) interested in buddhism to meet, meditate and have a monastic experience for a weekend. Normally the weekend contribution is 75,-, but for ‘Young Minds’ it is now 40,- for the whole weekend. And, if you are a student, Spectrum will also pay a part of this contribution. Last year we went with a group from Wageningen and it was a wonderful experience!

The program will include training in zazen (zen meditation), Buddhist ritual, scriptural study, and several group activities. Last year we had a great painting workshop by the abbot Tenkei Roshi. Arrival is Saturday February 1st, at 11:00 am, and ends Sunday, February 2nd, at 5:00 pm. For more information, please contact marloesharkema@gmail.com, who coordinates this activity to join the Young Minds weekend with a group of Wageningen students. Email spectrum.spc@wur.nl to sign up.
