Introduction to Zen Meditation In-Person
Sunday, July 21, 2024
2:00 pm

We welcome everyone at every service. We will provide meditation instructions at the beginning of each service, and an attendant will provide guidance for the simple rituals involved in a Zen service.

However, if you would like a little more information and guidance, the introductory services may be better for you. During them we offer a short introduction to Zen practice and more in-depth explanation of what we do during the services.

This event is in-person only and you can purchase tickets in advance.
