We follow a simple traditional Zen meditation practice and ritual intended to support the deepening of your meditation experience and the development of a mindful approach to life.
Our ritual involves a small altar, candle, and incense. Sitting on cushions, benches, or chairs is optional. Traditional chanting and two 25 minute periods of meditation separated by 8 minutes of walking meditation are punctuated by various percussive instruments and gongs.
While we do not have a regular Dharma talk, we occasionally share stories or readings from Buddhist teaching and discuss book recommendations. We maintain a small library of relevant materials. Your searching questions will always stimulate fruitful discussion.
It is our practice to start exactly on time, and we encourage arrival well before 6:45 p.m. After that time, the church doors may be locked.
