Zazen (Zen meditation) is about realizing the truth through intimacy with what is present in each moment.
Zazen is offered Monday-Thursday mornings, with sitting periods at 6:00am (arrive and be in your seat by 5:55) and 6:45am. Come for one or both periods.
We end with a brief liturgy/chanting service.
Note: The center will be closed from Monday, Aug. 27 through Monday, Sept. 3 for the Labor Day holiday.
Wednesday evening zazen from 7:00pm-8:30pm resumes September 12.
