Past Meetup

Pasa Dharma Zen Group


Pasa Dharma is a small informal Zen Buddhist meditation group, meeting at the Neighborhood Church, in Pasadena CA. We have been meeting in the Pasadena area for over 13 years. We are open to people of all spiritual traditions who would like to experience the life changing practice of meditation and awareness. We get together on Thursday nights for a brief discussion on aspects of Zen Buddhism, to sit zazen, and to share fellowship with other like minded people. Whether neophyte or experienced meditator, all are welcome to experience the dynamic stillness of Zen practice with us.

There is no cost for attending our group, donations are accepted. During our meeting, we share a group reading, have some discussion, and sit two 20 minute periods of zazen, with a short bit of walking meditation between them. We usually have about 20 people attend. We would be more than happy to have you come out to visit and sit with us. The dress is casual, something loose and comfortable. We have plenty of cushions and chairs, but feel free to bring your own if you have a favorite. So, come on out and discuss your meditation practice, meet each other, and of course, just sit.

If this is your first time visiting us, or if you have never sat silent concentration meditation (zazen), we strongly suggest that you RSVP and come for the beginner's instruction at 6:30pm, right before our regular meeting that starts promptly at 7:00pm.
