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.
