Beginning Instruction

Monday evenings, 6:30pm – 8:30pm.

For those new to Zen meditation or who have not practiced meditation in a zendo before.

Formal instruction begins promptly at 6:30 (arrive by 6.20 pm) and lasts until 7:05.

Recommendations for a comfortable, stable sitting posture are given, as well as guidance on how to begin a meditation practice and do walking meditation. The two 30-minute meditation periods that follow are an opportunity to deepen practice. The evening concludes with chanting of the four vows.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions of the instructor and experienced students afterward.

Suggested donation is $10.
