Beginner's Mind Zen (http://www.beginnersmindzen.org/) (beginnersmindzen.org (http://www.beginnersmindzen.org/)) is a small community dedicated to helping people navigate joy and sorrow in their lives. We seek to integrate highly accessible Buddhist practices and modern urban life. Using meditation, chanting, and study, we offer practical ways for people to skillfully negotiate the challenges they face and more clearly engage with the world.
We offer weekly Tuesday night meditation sessions that run for around 60 minutes, which includes an introduction to the forms, alternating periods of sitting meditation (zazen) and walking meditation (kinhin), and a short discussion. We invite beginners and experienced practitioners alike.
We also offer a book study and formal Zen services.
All meetings are free (as in no-cost) and open (as in you can attend any one of the meetings or all of them).
