      Jun Dung Sa Zen meditation in English is every Satuday (in December only on the 17th, the other weeks cancelled for winter break) at 5pm. Hope you can practice and learn more each week!

    It will be my first time in the temple, too.
    I've done meditation and yoga, and taichi before , and I'm very excited about attending.
    I'll stay for the whole retreat.

      Look forward to seeing you! :) That's wonderful you have some background. Buddhist meditation is a part of the path towards liberation -- to see reality clearly, with the spirit of compassion and equanimity. Delving deeper into this wisdom aspect can sometimes seem unsettling to newcomers -- while de-stressing, relaxing, focusing, and mindfulness are useful, they are not the primary goal of Zen practice. But don't worry, hopefully everyone has a great time.

      Hello Chip! Yes, Jun Dung Sa Temple is at 900 Beaver Ruin Rd, Lilburn, GA (south of I-85 and north of Lawrenceville Highway). If it's your first time to this center, please arrive about 20 minutes early for introductions. We have plenty of cushions and mats, so no need to bring anything unless you need something specific. Will you stay the whole session and enjoy a light dinner together afterwards? If it's your first time meditating, it may be a little long, but you're welcome to try!
