Zendo Procedure

  • Arrive early. Allow time to make the transition to the dynamic stillness of the zendo.
  • Avoid wearing perfume, aftershave, or other fragrances.
  • Remove watches and noisy jewelry before entering the zendo.
  • Attire should be clean, dignified and restrained - no shorts, tank tops, distracting patterns and colors, or skin-tight clothing.
  • Student robes are preferred, and may be ordered through the center.
  • If you bring food to the Zen Center at any time, be sure it's vegetarian.
  • Observe silence. Moving during zazen not only disturbs others, it hinders your own concentration, creating even more discomfort.
  • Participate! You will find the more you give of yourself, the more your understanding will deepen.
