"NZC reminds me I’m not alone in the obstacles of life and provides a community that makes me feel loved and supported. I appreciate what you do more than I could articulate." - a comment from one of our program surveys
~ Sunday Open Zen ~ Whether you are new to the practice of Zen meditation or a longtime practitioner, you are welcome to attend our Open Zen sessions, offered most Sundays from 9:55am to 11:00am. These sessions include a brief period of meditation (~15 mins), and a dharma talk by one of the teachers, followed by community social time. Note:The door is open by 9:40; plan to arrive and be seated no later than 9:55am. If you arrive late, sit quietly in the community room until the meditation period ends; someone will then help you find a seat in the meditation hall.
*Sunday meditation sessions are offered on a donation basis; the suggested donation amount is $5 which may be placed in the dana (offering) bowl.
