Throughout the year, we organize workshops, masterclasses, (musical) events, lectures and guided tours. Some of these events are open for anyone to join, others are more exclusive.
Buddha-Nature - a Zen masterclass in the open air.
By Michel Dijkstra
In this masterclass, philosopher and Zen-practitioner Michel Dijkstra will guide you into a deeper connection with the surrounding landscape by Zen meditation and exercises in the field. You will gain insight in the rich tradition of Zen philosophy and poetry which is full of compassion and spiritual freedom.
More information later this year.
Lectures, exhibitions & events.
Frequently we present our vision on the interweaving of art, literature, research and nature preservation. We initiate exhibitions and happenings and we lecture at Art Academies, Universities and various other institutes.
