1-2:30pm
Free of charge; all welcome

Bring your curiosity, your questions, and a friend, and join us for our free Intro to Zen class this Sunday at 1pm at the Havurah, 15401 Westside Highway.

Whether you’re a regular attender or you’ve never been into our Zendo; whether you’re a long-time Buddhist practitioner or a Buddhist skeptic; whether you meditate frequently or you’ve never meditated before; whether you’re wearing a black Buddhist robe or a ski jacket; your presence and your questions are welcome here.

Abbot Koshin Chris Cain and Elizabeth Fitterer will lead the program which includes:
