What we're about

We meet for two 25 minute periods of silent seated meditation (zazen) with 10 minutes of walking meditation between them. First time visitors should arrive 15 minutes early for an introduction to our practice. Wear comfortable clothing for sitting on cushions (zafus). No need to bring a cushion, but you are welcome to bring your own if you'd like.

We are a practice group taught and guided by ordained Zen priests at the Rinzai Zen temple in Chicago (Daiyuzenji).
