Secondary school teacher
It is wonderful to be able to fully engage in the sitting, to stay completely with yourself even in the daily work in and around the zendo (Samu) and thus quickly come to inner peace.
I cannot imagine a better Zen teacher than Migaku Sato. He translates the texts from Japanese (7th century and others) and tries to find a language in German that a person living today can understand - which is quite an extraordinary achievement in relation to a Zen text. One senses his absolute conviction, which he also conveys as a teacher with wit and charm, so that it is also possible to listen intently during the Teisho.

Mediator and coach
A Zen sesshin is a particularly valuable time. What happens inside during this time of silence is difficult to describe in words.
The Domicilium Weyarn is a wonderful place where you can feel the fruits of long practice of many people. Today, no one needs to travel to Asia to experience authentic Zen practice. Everything can be found here.
I am very grateful that I found my teacher Hannelore Müller, MD. For me, she embodies authentic, living Zen. The support she has given me on the path of practice for many years is indispensable and invaluable.
