What we're about

Stillness and silence are powerful restorative forces and can connect you to a deeper sense of self beyond your concepts and ideas. Meditation cultivates this energy, and group practice magnifies it.

This Meetup group is used to manage events for the Eon Zen Center, led by Paul Gyodo, Sensei. Anyone with a sincere interest in meditation is welcome to all events, and beginners are encouraged! Monday evening sessions feature a short dharma talk, 25-40 minutes of sitting, group discussion and community time.

More information on Eon Zen Center can be found at http://www.eonzen.org .

Paul Gyodo, Sensei has practiced Zen meditation for over 25 years and received Dharma Transmission in the White Plum Zen lineage. We give instruction in traditional zazen forms.

Meditation with the Earth

Arbor Institute

Join in Meditation with the Earth at 12pm on Friday at the south east corner of Central Park near 13th and Arapahoe. Please bring your own cushion or chair, and a mat for ground protection as well as layers for warmth and comfort as needed. Snow, sun, wind, rain, no matter the weather, we are there, and all are welcome.

We ring the bell at 12:05 for a 30 minute period of meditation, followed by a brief sharing of our experience. Join for all or part of the meditation as you are called and able.

By practicing regularly in nature -- sitting in the elements, with the elements, as the elements -- we are able to experience greater intimacy with the earth and with the interdependency of all life.

During this time of profound of ecological change, we draw upon the Zen Peacemaker practice of bearing witness to help us to feel deeply, see clearly and act wisely to nurture a healthy, thriving planet.

Invite your friends. All are welcome.
