Heart of Wisdom Zen Buddhist Temple
The purpose of Heart of Wisdom is to provide a refuge of stillness and peace in a busy urban environment, to practice and share Buddhist teachings, and to cultivate the qualities of unflagging optimism, self-discipline, compassion, and wisdom.
Daily zazen and free instruction in how meditate geared to beginners is offered. People of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to find a comfortable way to meditate using a chair, a bench, or cushion. Individual and group practice support is available. Also offered are quarterly day-long silent retreats, called zazenkai, and every full moon the temple is open for Loving Kindness meditation. There is never a charge for meditation so these offerings are supported by donation.
Workshops and classes are also offered, connecting spiritual practice and daily life with topics on relationships, communication, money, work, mindful eating, and the arts.
Weekday mornings 6:00 am – 7:00 am
Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 7:30 pm.
