Each year, the Zinal Convention brings together between 300 and 500 participants, mostly yoga and meditation teachers, but also yoga practitioners of all ages and from around the globe. Many prominent teachers are among the guests of honour invited each year since 1973, including Swami Satchidananda, Swami Satyananda, Andre Van Lysebeth, Indra Devi, T.K.V. Desikachar, A.G. Mohan, T.K. Sribhashyam, Willigis Jäger, Père Lassalle, Sogyal Rinpoche, and many others. This year, Sri Anandi Ma, Swami Nityamuktananda and Ravi Ravindra are the guests of honor at the prestigious Zinal Congress.


Spirituality in the 21st century

 We are for 2 decades in the 21st century but, in many aspects, the world situation seems to be closer to “the dark age!”

What does it mean to be spiritual in this 21st Century?

Our guests of honor

Richard Moss

Richard Moss is an internationally respected leader in the field of inner transformation, subtle body-mind dynamics, and living a path of conscious relationships. In 1977 Richard was a practicing medical doctor when he experienced a spontaneous spiritual illumination that awakened him to the multi-dimensional nature of human consciousness. This realization profoundly transformed his understanding of the roots of emotional suffering, and inspired him to explore the almost limitless human potential for growth and healing.

Anna Gamma

Dr. Anna Gamma (1950) studied psychology and philosophy. In her professional life, she was mainly active in various institutions in a managerial position. As a longtime manager of the Lassalle-Institut, she expanded the seminar programme and developed leadership and coaching courses. Today she acts notably as a lecturer at the University of St. Gallen.

Jeffrey C. Yuen

Jeffrey C. Yuen is the 88th Generation Daoist Master of Yu Ching Huang Lao Pai (Jade Purity School), Yellow Emperor/Lao Tzu Sect, ordained by 87th Generation Daoist Master Yu Wen, Jeffrey's adoptive grandfather. Immersed in the practice and study of Daoism and the classics of Chinese medicine since early childhood, Mr. Yuen offers unparalleled knowledge of the rich, oral traditions that fully integrate physical, psychological, and spiritual facets of the medicine.

Maurice Daubard

Maurice Daubard became a Yoga teacher in 1970 and then in 1980 the first teacher in Europe specialised in adaptation to the cold and snow. Maurice Daubard‘s reputation is based on his teaching of the Tibetans’ Toumo and the ‘overcoming of Oneself’ in his extreme expeditions, but he nevertheless remains one of the best European Yoga teachers. He has taught yoga full-time since 1970 and his reputation goes beyond the borders of France.
