The Meaning of ZENPUI

ZENPUI is an invitation to experience a life that allows us to connect with something greater than ourselves.

It is composed of two words, ZEN + TEPUI, the first one, beyond the school of Buddhism, it speaks of reaching enlightenment through experience, for us humans, that means reaching happiness through the way we live and TEPUI is the name of the square mountains in the south of Venezuela that in the dialect of the natives means “The House of the Gods.”
