During this four-week class, you can meet our teachers, hear talks on Zen practice and realization, ask any questions you may have, and learn to meditate in a comfortable sitting posture. This extended format is particularly helpful for students seeking to establish a daily meditation practice.
The introductory class is recommended for anyone new to Zen and seated meditation (zazen). We will teach you a simple breath practice to begin your meditation, and also introduce you to various practice forms we use at our center, should you desire to join our sitting group. Please wear subdued clothing comfortable for sitting cross-legged on cushions (although chairs are available if desired). Following the class, you are welcome to attend any of our regularly scheduled sittings and events.
Our next introductory class begins Wednesday, March 4, from 7 - 8:30 p.m., continuing each Wednesday for four weeks ending March 25, at 1856 S. Columbine Street in Denver. We do ask a $75 donation for the class, payable when you arrive (cash or check; we do not have a credit card reader). For more information about our location, including parking information, please go to https://zencenterofdenver.org/locations/ .
We look forward to seeing you!
“It is essential at the beginning of practice to acknowledge that the path is personal and intimate. It is no good to examine it from a distance as if it were someone else’s. You must walk it for yourself.” – Robert Aitken, Taking the Path of Zen
