The Stella del Mattino Community
Fano Zazen Group

The base of the Group is situated in a green area not far from Fano down town, a touristic little town on the Adriatic Sea shore, in Central Italy. The house, a perfectly restored old peasant house called “Casa Cecchi”, it is owned by the town of Fano that gives us free use of a room for sitting and of a place where we can have meals when we sit zazen all day long.


It is a classic town-zazen-group: people are gathering twice a week to sit zazen together for a couple of hours after they daily occupations. Once a month, usually towards the end of the month, we sit from morning till late afternoon, with a short stop to have a simple meal at noon. After weekly zazen, usually, there is time for speaking of the topics of the members’ daily life. Very rarely there is a doctrinal or an academic speech delivered from who has more experience about our trying to live a real life on the basis of Buddhism; this happens only when there is a feeling that the few words usually spoken after zazen are not sufficient to satisfy the need to understand what we are really doing with our lives.
