It is not a sign of health to be well adjusted to a

fundamentally ill society . . .


Today we have to create the social reference (context) to our own topics. Significant but not consciously perceived transgenerational burdens, such as never being able to arrive, are definitely part of it. You also have to know that we live in a deeply traumatized society. The pain travels through families until someone is ready to heal it within themselves. Those who are very afraid to question their own values and actions and prefer to hide behind toughness and determination may have unconscious or conscious reasons for doing so. In other words, whether you find dealing with these levels of self enriching or irritating is a very personal question, entirely independent of reflection. We invite you to experience essential connections, which mean integrated permanent healing of all suffering.

Hola, Bonjour, Welcome,


CHEZ ZeN, particularly energetic and healing places of power in the strengthening nature of Gascony and Mallorca.

To be CHEZ ZeN means to be love, to be all abundance, to be everything. Everything has its origin in nothing. Who is love, who is. He who is pure love refuses nothing, not even nothing.CHEZ ZeN means to recognize yourself in everything and thereby experience wholeness. Everything is in the flow of life. What a person wants to remove from the flow will carry him away until he recognizes himself as an infinite part of the perfect flow. Everything flows when it is allowed to flow. Every blockage is part of the flow. The solution wants to be found out, just like the problem. The solution of blockages wants to be experienced, like letting go.

Only those who cling can experience letting go. Know whether it is easy for you to let go.  Know what is difficult for you through what is easy for you. Feel it. Every feeling is part of the whole. Feelings that we reject are experienced precisely through our spiritual rejection.The very feelings we don't want need our compassion. CHEZ ZeN is a place of conscious compassion. Compassion presupposes the conscious experience of feelings.


Whoever has learned knows. Whoever has felt becomes compassion. Such is the felt becoming, the conscious being in compassion. 






Transformation takes place in the heart. CHEZ ZeN is a place that promotes self-knowledge. Whoever seeks knowledge, experiences himself consciously as a seeker. Many reject the seeker as an illusion. It is their own illusion, the illusion of illusion. Anyone who expects perfection in CHEZ ZeN and has many expectations is highly addicted. Whoever expects, waits.

​​A lot of expectations mean a lot of pressure. Take the pressure off of your own expectations. Give what you expect. In this way you become free from your addictions, regardless of the dependency.

The addiction to perfection is not served here in the knowledge that everything is good as it is. It is. Recognize the divine harmony behind everything. What you reject will be experienced outside, just like what you accept. Anyone who is full of rejection has a lot to criticize.




Criticism is an addiction. The addiction of rejection. CHEZ ZeN takes the path of conscious acceptance that arises from the conscious existence of rejection. Recognize why you are how you are instead of wanting to change your being. CHEZ ZeN means to be, to be whole.

The CHEZ ZeN is a place where the consciousness of love can be experienced consciously. Experiences are allowed and what would a person be without his experiences, he would be empty. The conscious emptiness is followed by every fullness. In CHEZ ZEN, he who is filled with abundance experiences abundance. 

Whoever lacks something here lives in lack instead of in the fullness of being.


CHEZ ZeN means to be with yourself, to be secure within yourself. Then you can bring security instead of expect security. Everything you give instead of expect, that sets you free. Those who only live in expectations give their addiction instead of being free. CHEZ ZeN is a path to freedom of being. It's a way, a way of conscious love.

CHEZ ZeN is an established, comfortable retreat resort located in the middle of the picturesque province of Mallorca. Not far from the protected world heritage site Serra Tramuntana, as well as in the immediate vicinity of Manacor, Mallorca's second largest city, the 4.7 hectare property, including private forest areas, consists of several historic and listed buildings, stands alone on a hill and offers breathtaking views of the sweeping valley meadows .

The peace-giving beauty and spaciousness of nature, the proximity to the wonderful coastal towns of the east of Mallorca, the long summer season and the holistic and sustainable approach of the center enable a wide range of events for retreats, therapeutic fasting, seminars and conferences all year round. The CHEZ ZeN is also designed to work with people, children, adults and seniors with physical disabilities, as well as to accommodate such groups.

Airport: Palma de Mallorca

A large saltwater pool, sauna, fireplaces, and proximity to a lake for swimming and hiking also contribute to physical well-being and deep relaxation. The tastefully and individually designed seminar rooms and bedrooms are spread across the four free-standing buildings of the resort, which, in addition to the spacious outdoor areas, also has eight terraces and roof terraces for relaxation.

The property also houses an idyllic orchard and an organic "Permaculture" vegetable garden, which enriches CHEZ ZeN's vegetarian cuisine.
