This is from the book the compass of Zen by Seung Sahn, I'm not familiar with this center in Germany nor do I know friends who are, hope they're genuine. There are number of Kwan Um groups in Germany. If you ever get the chance to meet up with Arne Schaefer, do it. He is a funny and warm person. :)...

Re: Genjo Marinello

I like him (matching conditions)
he's one of the few (zen-teachers) who actually communicates on facebook (no matter what the topic) and responds to (critical) replies, a fine human being. Also very cool with his astronomy "pictures"
