Zazen is 1200 years old meditation practice which belongs to Zen tradition. Zen doesn’t believe in
anything. It only says “Observe and investigate carefully, who is the one who sees, listens, feels,
thinks and experiences life here and now. Explore that”. Therefore Zen promotes study of self
“Do not follow ideas of others, but learn to listen the voice within yourself. Your body and mind"
Marko D. Simeunovic has been practicing Zen for more than 10 years.
Yearly he travels to Japan where lives and trains in Rinzai Zen Monastery
in Okayama. The training is led under instruction and supervision by one
of the greatest living Zen masters of our time Shodo Harada Roshi. Several
times per year he also attends sesshin (zen retreats) held in Germany.
When time and circumstances allow, Marko spends time in solitary
retreats in Dordorgne France. He had spent some period of time in
Himalayas where learned about self inquiry and meditation from Tibetan
Today he practices as a Medical Doctor and working with people he have
noticed alarming degree of stress in today’s society and lack of skills to
cope with it. Zen and other body-mind practices have never been of so
great importance than now
“My heartfelt wish is to try help others develop rather stable, open,
peaceful and resilient mind which gradually leads to more harmonious
way of life”
