Sunday Morning Practice: Chanting, Zazen, and Study

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