INTRODUCTION TO ZEN PRACTICE – FIRST SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH

Our monthly introduction to Zen practice. Instruction in zazen and a chance to get to know the center. No pre-registration, no fee. Just come. 11 am – noon. Please note the time change as this used to be offered on Saturdays at 9 am.

We also are happy to now be able to offer this class by appointment, if this time does not work for your schedule.  Please contact us if you are interested in scheduling a different time.

Zazen is wholehearted sitting, dropping off thoughts and views and returning to life here and now, over and over.

Hakuin - Death

NEW YEAR’S DEATH POEM WORKSHOP – WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16 at 6:30 pm

6:30 – 8:00 pm

(The announcement that the workshop would begin at 6 pm last Sunday was a mistake!)

We will explore the Zen tradition of writing death poems at the beginning of the year, a practice that can be profound, humorous and full of life! We will read and discuss some traditional poems and engage in writing and sharing some of our own.

(The calligraphy above is “Death” by Hakuin)
