September 1 @ 9:30 am - 12:15 pm

|Recurring Events (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Sunday, repeating until January 1, 2022

Mindfulness for Preschoolers

On Sunday mornings we begin at 9:30am with a 30-minute traditional Soto Zen chanting service* that includes bowing. Participate or observe as you feel comfortable, or arrive by 10am for zazen. We sit for two 25-minutes periods with 10 minutes of walking meditation in between (from 10-11am).

After zazen we break for tea and cookies, and then at 11:15 we return to the Zendo for a Dharma talk or class (Dharma means Buddhist teaching). For a general description of our meetings, click here. All are welcome!
