Introduction to Zen Meditation

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 these services we offer a short introduction to Zen history and philosophy, in-depth instruction for Zazen (Zen meditation), and an explanation of temple etiquette.

The introductory services are held on the first Sunday of the month at 10:00 am (in-person and online Register Here) and the third Sunday of the month at 2:00 p.m. (in-person only Register Here).
