The residents' daily morning and
evening zazen schedule is open to those who have attended an initial
zazen instruction, cannot make it to the zazen gathering times, or would like
to intensify their daily practice. Please contact the Zendo for current
days and times.
at gatherings are approximately 25 minutes, followed by 20 minutes, with
a short optional standing break in between. It is also possible to sit
through the break, making the whole sitting 45 minutes. Zazen periods are
followed by approximately 10 minutes of "kinhin" Zen walking.
What to expect? Please plan to arrive a few minutes
early to be seated in the zendo before the period begins, anytime from 30
min. prior to starting time. Come to the house and remove the shoes
before coming in. There's a sign-in book and donation basket at the
entrance table. Zazen gatherings are offered on an open donation basis
(members: free). There is a closet for coats. There is a rest room in the
house just around the fireplace. The zendo (zazen hall) building is just
a few yards away. You will need your shoes again. Then remove shoes in
the entry room of the zendo. You are welcome to bring your own cushion or
use a cushion, bench, or chair provided in the foyer of the zendo. Enter
mindfully and quietly.
What to wear: Comfortable
and loose fitting, non-form clinging clothing in solid, neutral colors,
long in length, and with mid-length sleeves work well. Please do not
wear tank tops, shorts, tight pants, or fragrance. The zendo can be
chilly in winter months; dressing in layers is recommended. Slide-on
shoes to and from the zendo are helpful.
