The Albuquerque Open Sky Zen Group focuses on practicing and sharing the Dharma together. While there is emphasis on Zen teaching and practices, an integrative approach is taken and thus practice and teachings from other Buddhist traditions are incorporated.
The evening consists of two sitting periods with a period of walking meditation between them. After the second sitting, a short Dharma talk is given on some aspect of practicing and then there is time for questions and answers. All levels of practitioners are welcome to join. Introductory meditation instructions are given at the beginning of the evening for those who need them.
AOSZG is led by Tony Sager, a senior Dharma teacher of the Kwan Um School of Zen.
