ZenQiYo Academy CLASSES

The ZenQiYo Academy classes are suitable for anyone who wants to improve health, well-being and success in personal and professional life or who wants to increase personal level of mindfulness and wisdom.

Join the regular practice, regardless of whether you just want to explore new ways, take a short break from hectic of everyday life, or learn how to cope better with stress.  If you are unsure about the schedule or have any questions, please contact Honotori Zendo. The Zendo Program is diverse, and Doka Sensei strives to select the programs that meet the needs of everyone at all levels. Zendo offers a permanent series of workshops, courses and instructions that are carried out by three different project lines to address people from all walks of life.

If you would like to organize keynote speech, courses or seminars for your organization, please contact the teacher or read the overview of the basic program modules of the ZenQiYo Academy.

Concept behind the Urban Classes 

You can choose which path you want to take, which tool you want to use, how far and how intensively you want to practice it. Or, you can also consult the teacher to help you with your choices. It's entirely up to you - just take the first step on your personal path.  


The practice is based on the Three Kernel System, developed by Doka Sensei to support urban practitioners.

Hinotori is a small Zendo and only accepts 2-5 students per session. Pre-registration/ cancellation is therefore mandatory.  Please, arrive no later than 10 min before the beginning of class. 5 minutes before the start, the Zendo door is closed.  If you are visiting Hinotori Zendo for the first time or have no experience with practice, please contact the teacher for further instructions.

Urban Practitioners

This practice is aimed at everyone who wants more orientation in overcoming stress or who wish more clarity and focus in everyday life.

Training Students

For those who want to gain a deeper understanding of the causes and consequences of suffering, it may be a better choice to participate in the "Training Student" practice  .


Dana Practice

The recommended tuition fees are based on the principles of Dana practice. If you can donate more, this will be greatly appreciated as Zendo cannot work without your contribution. However, if you cannot pay the suggested amount, contact Zendo to find a solution. Money should never be an obstacle to your practice.

If you are seriously trying to improve your life, you need to expand your practice beyond occasional meditation. You will be supported in your aspiration by Mondo (public questions to the teacher), Life Guidance, Online Teaching and programs, workshops, Retreats and more.
