Become a Zen student

This is for those wanting to make a deeper commitment to Zen practice. This might arise out of a connection to our methods of practice, our community, and our teachers.  Students will meet on a regular basis with Sensei Laurie. The same $40-70 per month scale applies.  To become a Zen student, please speak personally with Sensei Laurie.  The following guidelines apply:

*A minimum of 1 year of regular meditation practice.

*Committed meditation practice, a minimum of 30 minutes daily.

*Study of Dharma books of your choosing or suggested by the teacher.

*Regular participation in meetings and events at our center, including attendance of at least one retreat per year.

*Regular dokusan (private interviews) with Sensei Laurie.  At least once a week if possible.
