Introduction to Zen Practice

Are you new to meditation? Or perhaps you’ve been meditating on your own, but would like to know more about Zen? Or maybe you are an experienced practitioner who would like to know more about what we are doing at GBZC and why? Have you tried out other Zen sanghas but found them teacher-centered and cultish? On Saturday Morning May 4 and Tuesday evening May 7, GBZC will be offering “Introduction to Zen Practice” during our normal practice times.

Experienced sangha members will demonstrate and explain (as well as lead) our walking, chanting, bowing, and sitting forms. The second period will be used for questions and discussion. All are welcome, either in person or over zoom! See the Schedule Summary webpage for times and links to instructions.
Note to regular attendees: Please still plan to come! We can all use our experience to guide newer folks, all enjoy the discussion, and all take this opportunity to review and better harmonize our Zen forms.
