Zenmasters & Administration
In 1992 Mienh Judith and Mienh Adelheid founded the laity Zen monastery ZENKLAUSEN in the High Fens in the Eifel. As authorized Zenmasters they guide people through their Zen experience. They lead and accompany their visitors through the silence, peace, and especially into the spiritual leisure of Zen.
Adelheid Meutes-Wilsing came in touch with Zen by the Jesuit Father Hugo Enomiya-Lassalle during their five-year stay in Italy. She was a teacher and studied Sinology and theology. She practiced intensive ZEN under Father Hugo Enomiya-Lassalle, Parbhasa Darma Roshi, and Thich Nhat Hanh. Together with Judith Bossert she founded the Zenklausen in 1992.

In 1980 she founded the quarterly magazine ZEN, which also has been published since 1988 in German language. Judith practiced intense ZEN at various masters, especially in Thich Nhat Hanh and Parbhasa Darma Roshi. In 1988 she moved to Germany in the Eifel and founded together with Adelheid Meutes-Wilsing the Zenklausen in 1992.
