Weekly Schedule

 

The regular weekly schedule is available to regular practitioners, those who have attended the current month’s introductory workshop, or those participating in a Zen Mindfulness Month program.

We do not offer “open” or “drop in” sitting periods.

College students working on course assignments are asked to contact the Center to make special arrangements.

(The Introductory workshop also serves as a welcome and orientation for those who have practiced meditation in other traditions or at other Zen Centers.)

A detailed calendar is send by email to Practitioners, Introduction to Zen Meditation Workshop participants and Zen Mindfulness Month Program participants.  The Zen Center is closed during intensives except to those who are participating.

Sundays, 5 pm to 7
