Public Sunday Morning Sitting*
Formal Zen Meditation Schedule
Daily meditations are open to anyone who has attended a public Sunday morning sitting and received instruction. Exception is Wednesday night sitting, which is for formal students only. Student-membership is available and offers a way to formalize and deepen your relationship to practice, a teacher, and the community. We offer a 30-day trial membership for those exploring to study here. First attend a Public Sunday Morning Sitting & Dharma Talk, and make arrangements with the Director to discuss your interest in becoming a student.
