Every Wednesday evening we gather for chanting at 6:00 PM, followed by zazen at 6:30 PM ET. Our sitting period is for about 25 minutes. We then have a five minute period of walking meditation whereby members get up from their cushions and walk in a mindful way. This is often followed by a short teisho (talk) given by one of our Roshis or Sensei. After the talk, we will sit in zazen until about 7:30. We have a short closing period using a chant from our chant book.
June 10th: Saturday sesshin starting at 9:30 and ending around 12:00 noon.
June 24th: Book Discussion at 9:00. We will be beginning our new book: The Healing Breath- Zen for Christians and Buddhists in a Wounded World by Ruben Habito. He was an associate of Elaine MacInnes who wrote our last book, Flowing Bridge. Please read the Preface through page 18.
Please note that following our book discussion, we will move right into a meeting of our Board of Directors. All are invited to stay on for that.
We are excited to announce that we will be returning to the McMahon Retreat House for Saturday seshins.
