Sittings at Syracuse University

The Zen Center of Syracuse and the Syracuse University Buddhist Meditation Association together offer meditation at Syracuse University. All sittings are held at Hendricks Chapel in the small chapel in the basement unless otherwise noted.  Each includes instruction and discussion, with half an hour of meditation.

These sittings are offered daily, except for days when Syracuse University is closed (generally, New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday following, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve).

All are welcome to attend -- you do not need to be affiliated with Syracuse University to join us!

Meditations will be offered live in the Small Chapel in the lower level of Hendricks, on Zoom, or both.
