Weekday Mornings

"Meditating Demon" by Jan Zaremba

Weekday Morning Sitting Periods

Morning sits at the Cambridge Zendo are suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, Sunrise Sits involving the wider GBZC community are offered over Zoom from 7:00-7:45 am Monday through Friday. All are welcome! Kate, Diane, Laura, Carol, Julie and Fran will collectively hold our Cloud Zendo and offer one 25 minute sit and a short encouragement talk or reading by one of the teachers. Full instructions here.

What follows is information about the non-pandemic program in Cambridge:

NOTE: Orientations are not offered on weekday mornings. We encourage you to come for an orientation on Tuesday or Wednesday evening, or on Saturday morning. But if that's not possible, we encourage you to listen to the intro talks on the homepage and/or just show up. Please come a few minutes early to get settled.

For your first visit, please email the practice coordinators to say you are coming. You can find their emails in the Arrange an Orientation page (even though full orientations aren't offered).

These events offer a brief liturgy service and zazen.

Please try to arrive few minutes before the start-times listed below.
