Sitting with others can significantly strengthen a sitting practice you may have started on your own. All are welcome, regardless of religious affiliation or experience. Meditation instruction is available, as are meditation cushions, benches and chairs. If you have not done Soto Zen meditation before, you are encouraged to attend a 20-minute Introduction to Zazen; for an Introduction, simply arrive 30 minutes early on a Tuesday or a Sunday.
We have new folks all the time, so please don’t hesitate to show up. Feel free to ask questions; we want you to feel welcome and comfortable. You can arrive or leave at any point in the schedule (click the following links for meeting descriptions and schedules: Tuesday evenings or Sunday mornings).
Meetings are free of charge, but we are supported by donation. There is a donation box at the Zen Center, and if you attend for a while and develop a connection to the group you can support Bright Way by becoming a member.
