Zen Meditation Group
We meet on:

Friday evenings (from 7:30 – 8:30pm)
Sunday evenings (from 5:30 – 7pm)
Our Zen meditation group meets at Core Star. Beginners and seasoned meditators are warmly 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 evening is our main weekly meeting 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 discuss your practice individually) until 7pm, followed by an optional tea time. We operate on freely given donations. If you would like to contribute to our community activities please see our support us page.
Tuesday, Wednesday,Thursday sessions are comprised of two 25-minute periods of zazen with a walking meditation in between.
Friday Evening Meditation (7:30 – 8:30pm) At this session we introduce the various meditation practices, energy exercises, and self-healing practices of our tradition. We typically do two periods of practice with some walking meditation in between. Good for beginners! If you are new please try to come 10-15 minutes early.
