Shintai Dungay

Shintai Dungay

Thursday evening practice is led by Shintai Dungay. Schedule is similar to Tuesdays; we meet for zazen (seated meditation), study and community. We begin the evening with a short recitation of a Zen teaching at 6:30pm (click here to read the things we recite), and then sit two periods of zazen with ten minutes of walking meditation in between (from 6:40-7:30pm). Then we break for tea and cookies, and return to the Zendo at 7:45pm for a class or Dharma Talk (see below). For a general description of our meetings, click here. All are welcome!

Thursday Study

On Thursday evenings Shintai presents a teaching or we read aloud from a book we are studying and then discuss it. It isn’t necessary to have the book or read ahead of time. Click here to see a schedule of our upcoming Thursday evening study topics.

Every third Thursday of the month, Shintai will give a Dharma Talk.
