Zen Buddhism is becoming very popular in the US due to it very direct, upfront and empirical approach to understanding Buddhism and how it can benefit us. Zen attracts many different people, from all walks of life, because of its non-dogmatic, yet simple way it teaches the dharma through meditation and discussion. Fairfax lacks and formal Zen Center or Zendo, and I see that there is more than enough interest to found a small, friendly and informal Zen meditation and discussion group. The group will focus on the basic teachings of a few styles of Zen Buddhism, and discuss in an open and laid back setting Zen meditation and dharma discussions. We will explore some of the traditional practices such as the tea ceremony, Zazen(seated meditation) and koans. This group is perfect for beginners to Buddhism who wish to learn more, or even those who are just curious what Zen Buddhism is. Also, experienced Zen practitioners, who would like to practice in a group setting and who may want to share their wealth of experience and knowledge are greatly welcome.
