Temporary Schedule Change
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the center is temporarily closed for group meditation. To help the sangha continue practicing together, we offer an online Zoom meditation every Monday at 6 PM and Wednesday at 7:30 PM. Details are announced weekly through our e-newsletter (signup link on top of this page). For beginner's instruction, please email us to make an appointment for an online Zoom session.
Zen group study
The following two books are recommended by our spiritual friend from the Upaya Zen Center in Santa Fe. There are many used copies in good condition you can purchase, both online or at your local used book store.
We would love to get your feedback on your learnings from these books.
1) Training in Compassion by Norman Fischer
We are planning to start a weekly study group on this book this spring.
2) Living by Vow: A Practical Introduction to Eight Essential Zen Chants and Texts
by Shohaku Okumura
This is a must-have treasure for Zen study and to support your practice.
