What we're about

This group is open to all, beginners and experienced practitioners, who are interested in meditation and the incorporation of a practice into one's everyday life. Meditation instructions are given for new people; we do a period of sitting followed by a teaching and discussion and sharing for those who wish to share something. The group is led by Tony, a senior dharma teacher of the Kwan Um School of Zen.

Albuquerque Open Sky Zen Group

Albuquerque Zen Center

The Albuquerque Open Sky Zen Group is led by Tony Sager, a senior dharma teacher within the Kwan Um School of Zen. The AOSZG is a practice group with teaching and guidance. Tony will lead it every other Monday and on the nights he is present he will teach on certain aspects of Zen practice, focusing in part on the formal and informal aspects of practice and how to incorporate practicing in a very natural way into all parts of one’s every day life. He will bring heart into the practice, teaching how the heart is part of the essence of the core of dharmic realization and how it manifests in life. In addition to sitting and walking meditation and teaching, there will be time for questions and answers and sharing for those who wish too. Sitting meditation instruction will be given for those who are new to practicing. The weeks Tony is not present, Paul Sonia will lead the meditation. He will not provide teachings but will give sitting instruction for those who need it. As the AOSZG rents the space from the Albuquerque Zen Center, participants are encouraged to give dhanna (a donation). $5 is suggested but any amount that one is able to give will be appreciated. No one is turned away if they are unable to give something.
