Introduction to the Zen Center

In this introductory session, we briefly discuss meditation practice and posture, Zen practice and what to expect at a Zen service.

The regular Sunday service follows at 10am.

You can also come by 10 minutes before any of our sits to get a quick orientation, or just come on in and follow along.  Typical practice includes tea, chanting, and 20-25-minute periods of zazen meditation. No previous meditation experience is required.
