You are welcome to join us in the Zendo at Harmony House at 6:45 PM for Seated Meditation, Walking Meditation, and a lecture by Zen Priest Chimyo on the teachings of The Buddha. Also, it is fine to attend only part of the session if that is your preference.
Meditation cushions (zafus) and chairs are provided. However, we have a limited supply of zafus so please bring your own if you have one. We do not have zabutons.
