We use specific techniques in order to trigger the relaxation response. Leave feeling refreshed! No previous experience necessary.

Buddhism by the Numbers.  1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month, 7:30 to 8:30pm. On Zoom.   Creating a foundation for your meditation practice. Great for beginners. In the time of the Buddha, there was no written language, so his students had to memorize his teachings in order to pass them down to the next generation.  Their method of doing this is often called “Buddhism by the Numbers.”  Each class, we will explore two fundamentail teachings.  Examples include the Four Noble Truths, the Eight-Fold Path, the Three Refuges, the Six Realms, and many more.  Our time will include guided meditaiton.  All are welcome, by donation.  Contact us for in person details. 

Dogen Discussion Group.  2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, 7:30-8:30pm. On Zoom.  Includes zazen and discussion.  Each month we will explore a different essay by our ancestor, Eihei Dogen.  You will be encouraged (though not required) to read the essay ahead of time.  Our essay for this month will be Bendowa, On the Endeavor of the Way.  Link to text here: https://www.thezensite.com/ZenTeachings/Dogen_Teachings/Shobogenzo/bendo.pdf Contact us for in person details.
