Thursday Evening Zazen and Study

Thursday evening practice is led by Shintai Dungay. The 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 (click here to read the things we recite), and then sit two periods of zazen with ten minutes of walking meditation in between. Then we break for tea and cookies, and return to the Zendo for study and discussion (see below). For a general description of our meetings, click here. All are welcome!
