Stillness and silence are powerful restorative forces and can connect you to a deeper sense of self beyond your concepts and ideas. Meditation cultivates this energy, and group practice magnifies it.
Our group started in January 2012. We practice Zen meditation together 1-2 days a week. Anyone with a sincere interest in meditation is welcome, beginners encouraged! Each session has a short introduction and instruction, 20-30 minutes of sitting, and a short group discussion following.
Paul Gyodo has practiced Zen meditation for over 20 years and is a Dharma Holder in the White Plum Zen lineage. We give instruction in traditional zazen forms, but this group is non-sectarian and welcomes other compatible practices.
