Formal Zen Meditation Service


April 24, 2022

The Center is now open up fully for in-person attendance. The numbers attending are no longer limited to 10; the cushions in the zendo are no longer socially distanced; and if you have been fully vaccinated, you will not need to wear a mask in the center. If you have not been vaccinated, please wear a mask if you choose to attend. And if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask for any reason, vaccinated or not, please do.

If this is your first visit please come at least 15 minutes early so that we can show you around.

First Sunday of each month: A first sitting meditation of 35 minutes is followed by a few minutes of walking meditation known as kinhin. We have a chanting program for 35 minutes, followed by kinhin and another 35 minute round of zazen meditation.

Second Sunday of each month: A first round of sitting meditation of 35 minutes is followed by a few minutes of walking meditation known as kinhin and a dharma talk by Jeff George, a senior student of Roshi Lawson Sachter, followed by kinhin and a second 35 minute sitting.

Third Sunday of each month: A first round of sitting meditation of 35 minutes is followed by a few minutes of walking meditation known as kinhin and a dharma talk by Jeff George, a senior student of Roshi Lawson Sachter, followed by kinhin and a second 35 minute sitting.

Fourth Sunday of each month: Three rounds of sitting meditation of 35 minutes each, with kinhin following each sitting. During any sitting, participants may quietly leave their sitting cushion and go to a separate room of the Zen Center for daisan, a private and confidential consultation with Jeff George concerning matters of practice.

On rare fifth Sundays, there are three rounds of sitting meditation of 35 minutes each, with a kinhin following each sitting.

Every Sunday practice session ends at 11:30 and is followed by an informal social gathering with tea, coffee, and snacks, except for the first Sunday of the month, when we have our board meeting.
