Bori Centro Zen invites you to experience the practice of Zen meditation in a supportive, warm-hearted environment where you can learn the basic Zen practice techniques and discover how this ancient tradition can help you and the world.
The Kwan Um School is a worldwide Zen tradition that has operated in Catalonia for many years. Members of Bori Centro Zen meet regularly in Barcelona and hold practice and, from time to time, Dharma talks and workshops. Our beautiful Zen retreat center, Bori Sa, is located in the Alta Garrotxa (Girona); there we offer daily practice and monthly retreats, occasionally with teachers of the Kwan Um School of Zen. Our programs are open to anyone regardless of previous experience.
We practice sitting and walking meditation and also use chanting, bowing, eating and working together, all as Zen practices in the Kwan Um tradition. Teaching follows the direct, simple style of Zen Master Seung Sahn, the Korean Zen Master who founded our school.
