Benediktushof – center for meditation and mindfulness

What do meditation, mindfulness, contemplation, and Zen do? Everybody is longing for happiness, contentment, love, and a full experience of life with all its facets. Practices such as Christian contemplation and Zen have been giving answers to that longing for thousands of years, at its core focusing on meditation and mindfulness. But how to meditate correctly and what does mindfulness mean in daily life? Benediktushof in Holzkirchen, as a center for meditation and mindfulness, provides answers to precisely these questions.
