We practice chanting, sitting meditation, and Dharma discussion every Monday evening from 6:45 pm till 8:15 pm. We also conduct a monthly long sit on the first Sunday of every month.  Anyone is welcome, whether beginner, experienced meditator, or just curious about Zen Buddhism or meditation in general.

Monday Evening Practice Format:

6:45 - 7:15pm Chanting
7:15 - 7:35pm Sitting Zen
7:35 - 7:40pm Walking Meditation
7:40 - 8:00pm Sitting Zen
8:00 - 8:15pm Dharma Discussion / Closing

A half-day retreat is also held the first Sunday of every month at the GRC from 10am - 3pm.

We practice at the Gainesville Retreat Center.  Please see either website for directions, contact, or other information:
