What do you hope to find and/or experience in this sangha, and what would you like to offer?

When I lived in La Crosse, I'd often drive out to Ryumonji Zen Monastery in Dorchester, Iowa. That's a bit far for me to drive now, and I'm looking for a community in Madison. I'm unclear about the difference between Rinzai and Soto Zen. When I lived in Kansas, I was a member of a Korean sangha (Kwan Um).

Do you have a current meditation practice?

Yes. Sometimes I do straight zazen. Sometimes I work with visualization. Sometimes I hold crystals. Sometimes it is more like prayer. I vary my practice according to what I feel I need.


Hi, I'm Mark. I teach in Madison, but live in Stoughton. I have a daily meditation practice, and am looking for a group.

What Mark L. is saying about this Meetup Group

Robin led an excellent session with yoga, meditation and discussion afterwards. Highly recommended.
