Our Zen meditation group meets at 352 W. 12th Ave. in Eugene, Oregon. Both beginners and seasoned meditators are invited to attend. If you are new please try to come 10-15 minutes early.  Zen is strongly associated with group practice. Having the opportunity to practice with others on the same path is tremendously beneficial.

Sunday afternoon is our main weekly gathering and there is time for guidance for beginners and some teaching. We begin with a short dharma talk followed by zazen (seated meditation) with an opportunity for sanzen (a time to talk individually about your practice) until 6pm. We operate on freely given donations.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday sessions are comprised of two 25-minute periods of seated meditation with a walking meditation in between.

Friday Evening Meditation sessions: various meditation practices from the Zen tradition are introduced. We typically do two periods of practice with some walking meditation in between.
