Intro to Zen

Saturday, January 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Bring your curiosity, your questions, and a friend, and join us for our free Intro to Zen class.

Whether you’re a long-time Buddhist practitioner or a Buddhist skeptic; whether you meditate frequently or you’ve never meditated before; whether you’re wearing a black Buddhist robe or a ski jacket; your presence and your questions are welcome here.

Abbot Koshin Chris Cain and Elizabeth Fitterer will lead the program which includes:

Part 1: Why Zen?
Introductions. Any questions about Zen?
What we love about Zen and how we got into it
What’s the goal of practice at this Zen Center?

Break: tea and cookies

Part 2: Our Zen Center
Meditation instructions: chairs, cushions and benches
Brief explanations of zen ritual: tea, chanting, the role of the jiki and shoji, bowing
A very brief version of a Zen service-tea, jiki offers incense, one chant, bowing, sitting for 5 minutes, walking meditation.
