Zen meditation: Instruction and practice
We begin at 7:30am with zazen, the Zen meditation form, sitting for 25 minutes and ending with a brief chant. After packing up our cushions (the café opens at 8am), we gather at a table out in the restaurant to talk about our experiences, ask and answer questions, and learn more about each other. If it's your first time, please come about 15 minutes early for instruction on zazen form and our (simple) procedures. Let Peter know beforehand, and come first to the front door; if no one is there to let you in, come around the building to the back door; enter and make yourself known. Please note there is no charge for this Meetup, but you'll have to pay for your own drinks and food if you want them afterward.

What we're about

The Del Ray Zen meditation group was formed in 2011 to provide space and time for simple meditation practice for residents of Del Ray and nearby neighborhoods. We welcome meditators from any background and every level of experience, from beginner to bodhisattva.

We emphasize a commitment to the practice of sitting meditation (zazen) every day as a way to deepen our true nature and to actualize it clearly in our work and daily activities.
