Tuesday Evening Zazen and Study

On Tuesday evenings we meet for zazen (seated meditation), study and community. We begin the evening with a short recitation of a Zen teaching (click here to read the things we recite), and then a 30-minute period of zazen. At 7:45pm we break for tea and cookies, and at 8:00 we return to the Zendo for study and discussion (see below). For a general description of our meetings, click here. All are welcome!

ALL MEETINGS AT OUR ZENDO HAVE BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED

PLEASE NOTE: To slow the spread of Covid-19 in our community, all of our meetings will be online for a while. See the adapted online Tuesday schedule below!

Tuesday Study

On Tuesday evenings Domyo or a senior student presents a teaching, and then we have a discussion. It isn’t necessary to have read or studied ahead of time. Click here to see a schedule of our upcoming Tuesday evening study topics.
