NEW DAILY MORNING ZAZEN
On Jan. 24th, we began offering daily morning zazen. We sit for one period of forty
minutes from 6:20 to 7:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. Everyone is welcome to join
us. Starting off your day with quiet sitting meditation will benefit you as well
as all other people you come in contact with throughout the day. Please feel free
to park in our parking lot and come in through the basement door close to the zendo.
We look forward to your participation.
We continue to have zazen on Saturday morning from 6:30 a.m., on Sunday morning from
8:00 a.m. and on Monday evening from 6:30 p.m. Please visit our zazen page for more
The next Study Group will begin on Thursday, April 18th from 7:30pm to 8:50 pm. We
plan to meet for a total of seven times, ending on June 6th. This group is a continuation
of the previous Study Group. We will continue reading in The Essence of Zen. It
is perfectly acceptable to join this group even if you were not part of the previous
group. The Essence of Zen is a book that we can open any section and we will immediately
be in touch with the important points of Zen practice. We will sit in zazen for the
last 30 minutes of each class. The cost is $15 for temple members and $40 for non-temple
members. We look forward to seeing you there. If you wish to attend, please email
