Spring All-day Sitting

Since so many people have told us that they will be away and/or holding family gatherings during the original dates for Spring Sesshin, April 13-16, which conflicts with Easter on April 16, we decided to replace it with an all-day sitting on Saturday, April 15, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Read more »

Deep Presence

How often are we really present for what is happening in any one moment? Distractibility interferes with our ability to listen, to focus, to respond, and to feel fully alive. This course in the cultivation of attention without tension is offered regularly at the Zen Center, taught by Shinge Roshi, Roko Sherry Chayat. Six evening classes include meditation instruction and practice, group discussion, and light refreshments. 

The fee is $125; a reduced rate of $85 is available for students, seniors, and those with limited income.
