Wednesday Evening – Practice Session
Ordinary Zen Sangha Practice Sessions
Masks are optional. Please do not come to the Zendo if you are experiencing any symptoms or have been exposed to anyone with Covid.
OZS is secular in its approach, no experience is necessary, and all are welcome. We practice at our Zendo Wednesday Evening at 7:00 pm. We chant the Heart Sutra, practice sitting meditation for 25 minutes, walking meditation for 5 minutes, and another sitting meditation for 25 minutes, followed by a Dharma talk and discussion during which Tea is served. There is no set fee to participate, however, a donation will help defray our costs and is gratefully accepted. Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothing. We have some cushions (zafus) and chairs, however, if you have your own zafu, we encourage you to bring your own. If you need instruction, we recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes early (See “How to sit for Zazen“).
Every week on Wednesday
