On Mondays our practice is very similar to what we do on Tuesdays, with zen meditation, tea and cookies, and a discussion. However, on Mondays we do no ritual (chanting, bowing, use of altars, etc.) so anyone should feel welcome!
Bright Way Zen meets every Sunday morning, Monday evening, and Tuesday evening. Each meeting differs slightly in terms of content and schedule. Find more atwww.brightwayzen.org.
Sitting with others can significantly strengthen a sitting practice you may have started on your own. All are welcome, regardless of religious affiliation or experience.
We meet at Bright Way Zendo near Cedar Mill (12020 SW Barnes Road, Portland, OR 97225). Led by a qualified Soto Zen teacher, we practice Zen meditation together, and study and discuss Zen Buddhist teachings. Meditation instruction is available, as are meditation cushions, benches and chairs.
Bright Way Zen has been meeting since 2008. Meetings are free of charge, but we are supported by donation. Your generosity will help the group thrive!
