For more than twenty years, Zen sessions have been held at the abbey where Jeroen Witkam was abbot. The sole aim of these sessions, according to Witkam, has been the integration of Zazen into the Christian prayer life. During these sessions, writes the author, "The ways of Zazen—emptying or the attainment of a transparent heart and mind—matched those of the Christian spiritual path. Moreover, both Christian spirituality and Zen Buddhism have at their core the principle of compassion. Both religious traditions, in combination, provide an enriched contemplative life and a fuller appreciation of the spiritual path.
