For Newcomers

Everyone is welcome to practice with us.

There is no need to let us know in advance before attending regular practice. If you do, we’ll be sure to expect and welcome you. Comfortable clothing is recommended, as many of us sit on cushions on the floor. This is not required – other members prefer to sit in chairs.

There is nothing special to know before attending. You do not need to have practiced zen or even meditated before. We can give some simple instructions before practice if anyone needs them. Or, if you prefer to talk to someone and learn a little more before coming to practice please contact via Facebook.

There is no charge for our regular meditation practice. We have a donation link where you may leave an anonymous donation.

We look forward to meeting you and hope we can be helpful in some way.
