Why meditate at the Zen Center?


What can the Zen Center offer that is not already available online or in books?

Often when people try to  meditate on their own, they become discouraged and quit before giving it much of a chance to take hold.  The key to learning how to meditate– and keep it going– is to utilize the support of  a community of people who take meditation seriously, to attend regular programs which provide ongoing instruction and encouragement, and to receive coaching and mentoring to meet challenges or resistances.  You do not learn how to swim or play the saxophone by reading a book on your own.

Meditation is our specialization.

ZCOC offers the expertise, support, structure and encouragement essential to developing an effective meditation practice.  ZCOC  features dedicated, qualified teachers & a committed, diverse community.

The application of meditation to daily life  –work, family, relationships– through mindfulness practices– is emphasized.
