Weekly Meditation Classes are always free but a suggested donation of $5 helps us keep these programs running. If you are interested in learning about zen meditation, the best way to start is to attend a walk-in meditation instruction class at the zen center. By attending the class you will learn about what zen teaching is and the meditation techniques that we use here, as well as a general introduction to the zen center. The hour-long class is free and no registration is required.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
