The Zen center, a non-profit organization, whose purpose is to study eastern philosophy practices, is located on the first floor of the hotel. Even if you are a stranger to meditation or martial arts, this is a great opportunity to get acquainted. Zen – the meditation branch of Buddism, practiced here not as a religion or a doctrine, but as a general philosophy of life - has many followers in Athens and you can see them in the afternoons visiting the center.
Zen provides well-being and health to our body while helping us build a better self, by developing virtues such as self-esteem, mutual respect, courage, compassion, honesty and fairness.
Take off your shoes, enter and become a student in this fascinating ritual. The instructors are excellent and the experience is unique.
Meditation, aikido, iaido, tae kwon do and yoga classes are also available at the center and all Perianth guests are welcome. Ask at the reception desk for more information.
