Zazenkais are single or multi-day meditation retreats that offer the opportunity to deepen your practice through your concentrated effort, sitting together with the support of others and the form of the practice. The form is what we do together in practice and how we do it. Activities include zazen (meditation), kinhin (walking meditation), chanting, tea, formal meals (vegetarian), short work periods and Dharma Talks. This form has been polished over hundreds of years to provide continual opportunities to surrender your small self and realize your true self.
We normally conclude with a Listening Circle, a period of sharing through heartfelt speaking (optional) and listening.
Sitting on the edge of the meditation bench or in a chair is an option for those who may need it. Please talk with the Director regarding any questions you may have about participating in a zazenkai.
We normally have one zazenkai per month, please join us!
