Meditation has always been a benefit for calming the soul of an anxious mind, especially in the time of uncertainty. Earlier in 2020, a pandemic broke the normal life and practices people knew, but Maikoya has found a means to share the sacred way of ancient enlightenment through online zen training. This online event will be live straight from Kyoto, where traditional practices still thrive even today. Also this special virtual zen meditation is PRIVATE meaning you or your team members will be the only ones to join.

This zazen meditation retreat is led by a zen monk. During the online zen training, people will learn a calming meditation session right by the tea garden of Maikoya as can be seen in the picture below. The meeting is one’s online zendo, which can be done in any comfortable area of the person’s home. This will be a 45-minute session that includes small talk about the importance of acceptance, the art of letting go, and mindfulness taught by the monk, which will be interpreted by an English-speaking Maikoya staff live.
