July 29 - 31, 2022

In addition to the daily meditations, we regularly have a wide variety of events ranging from KüFa (kitchen for everyone), concerts, breathwork workshops and cloth swap parties to tattoo sessions.


The intention behind it: The Zen Lab should not only be a place for meditation and stillness, but also an open place for meetups and community building in the neighborhood. People of all kinds should come together, realize their ideas and find access to themselves in the midst of the turbulent life of the Eisi.

Here you can find a little visual impression into previous events.
