Beginner's Night

The Clear Water Zen Center is open every Wednesday evening at 6:45 PM for Beginning Meditation instruction (if you arrive at 6:59, the best we'll be able to offer is "sit down"). Starting promptly at 7:00 PM we do two rounds of seated meditation (about 15 minutes each), separated by a round of walking meditation. While we are a Zen Buddhist group, we invite individuals from all faiths (or no faith at all). For those interested in a form of meditation known as counting the breath, the method is to breathe naturally and to count each exhalation as it happens. When you reach the number ten, return to one. If you daydream and forget what number comes next, go back to one. If you've never sat in meditation with us before, please read our Zendo Etiquette page.

    I'm sorry, but I have to be out of town Wednesday night. I will try and make it in August.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
