Our Zen services are going online for the near term while covid-19 is working it’s way around these parts. To accommodate this, we will be using a cloud based video conferencing tool called zoom.us. To attend an online service, please go to https://zoom.us/j/5117064990 and we’ll see you there at the service start time.
We hope you’ll join us from wherever you are – Vashon Island, Seattle, Albuquerque, New York, Oslo, Berlin. Familiar faces and those who we’ve not yet met. All are welcome.
This Intensive Practice Period, the Heart of Our Practice, is based in ancient Buddhist tradition — the monks and nuns gathered during the rainy season to practice intensively together. In present day practice, it is time set aside each year when practitioners make personal and collective commitments to intensify their practice.
With most of the world sheltering in place and looking-out towards uncertainty we are excited to offer an accessible way to find interior quiet by taking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha with our online retreat.
Join us for a longer stretch of sitting as a way to deepen your meditation practice. We sit for 25 minutes maximum at a time followed by a walking meditation.
Just for fun we are doing a film series on Buddhist Themed films – loosely speaking. Free Admission, free popcorn, and free soda. All are welcome!
Bring your curiosity, your questions, and a friend, and join us for our Intro to Zen class in West Seattle.
Please join us for all or part of a half-day sit, built around our regular Sunday service. There’s no charge, no need to register, and no obligation to stay for the entire time–feel free to come and go as you need. Newcomers are welcome!
