Healing stay
Healing stay is a procedure where you relax your body and spirit by immersing it within nature. I have explained earlier, that the natural construction of the buildings creates a good vibration, which harmonizes the soul. By staying in this sort of environment instead of artificial constructions of modern life, you will gradually overcome any illness you have physically or mentally. We can also provide natural medicine like homeopathy , healing music and massages. The natural food that comes from the farm has positive energy hidden within that creates a boost in your body .Healing stay includes the healing power of nature. We humans are often too busy to appreciate the beauty of nature and the powers it contains. Healing stay lets you experience the gentle breeze that gently stirs the soul. The origin of the sounds of birds lets you hear a beautiful melody. The scenery provides the Sea of Clouds, an amazing scene where the mountains look like a bunch of islands surrounded by a white ocean of fluffy clouds. The trees around the farm seems to wrap itself around you like it is giving a warm hug of love.

Zen Stay
This is the type of experience where you can try Zazen. It is sitting neatly on your legs while concentrating on your breathing. You will get to the point where you are one with the universe. To become one with the universe, inhale into the infinity and exhale into what is limitless. And this stay will let you experience what is called moving Zen.

Moving Zen (Working study)
Suirin teaches a very special kind of Zen called moving Zen. This type of Zen focuses on breathing deeply while you work to be used in the daily life of an individual. This type of breathing will help you achieve perfection in anything you do. Additionally by focusing on this type of breathing, you should be able to banish fear from your mind and appreciate the present that you are currently living in. Wiping windows is very important as the window represents your
inner self. If the window remains dirty, no matter how hard you try to clean it, it means that your inner self is too full of thoughts. Only by clearing your mind of thought can the window be utterly clean. It is very difficult to achieve this state of mind, but it is very awarding in the end as the sense of accomplishment flows through you. Staying programs are initiated for those who want to study more of this kind of moving Zen.
