What we're about

Zen is not a path of devotion, nor opposed to any faith: Just watching the breath and being aware of being aware. Our initial goal is to learn to live in the moment by experiencing a deepening of our concentration over time through regular meditation practice. Sitting in community vastly reinforces practice. 
You can virtually, from home, meet other people who enjoy doing Zen meditation in community. Weekly sits are led by me on Zoom from 7 pm until about 8:00 pm on Tuesdays. You are encouraged to join every week or just join as you can. The extent of commitment is personal. You only need to wear loose, comfortable clothing and find a thick couch cushion or one or two pillows. You will be shown how to sit in good posture and how to follow the breath.

Virtual Sitting Every Tuesday evening on Zoom

Needs a location

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and look around at home for a cushion or pillow firm enough to support you comfortably while sitting with a straight back and legs folded. Try to join about five minutes before seven the first time so we can meet and I can explain how we do meditation in our Rinzai Zen tradition. There is no inperson sitting being held at Lucy Stone Hall at this time due to Covid. At this time and in the foreseeable future, virtual sitting on Tuesday evenings via Zoom is the only way to join this Meetup for Zen meditation. Here is my email to contact me for a Zoom invite. [masked] I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to sit together. I look forward to meeting you.
