Orientation for Newcomers
Newcomers are welcome to join in for any of the regular sittings during the week. If you are new to practice or to our center, please call or email ahead to set up an individual orientation.
Other meditation sessions and events are occasionally scheduled, including work weekends, weekend retreats, and week-long retreats. Because the scheduling of these events is subject to change, we suggest you check the Calendar below from time to time, in addition to the Upcoming Events page.
The zendo is always available for individual quiet sitting. If you wish to come and sit quietly in a peaceful, meditative atmosphere, you will find the door open.
