Traditional Practice Sits

We offer the first Monday of the month a period of “Traditional Practice.”  We devote the session to silence, extended sitting and walking meditation, and a short service of chanting and bowing. Please feel free to join us even if you do not have experience with our forms.

Instruction offered if you come by 6:30 pm on Monday evenings. We offer Zen meditation instruction for anyone who requests it.

We do recommend instruction for those new to Zen practice and can also arrange instruction outside of our regular meeting time and place.

You are welcome to join us without attending instruction, and may participate with our group any Sunday morning or Monday evening.
