During this three-hour class, you can meet our teachers, hear talks on Zen practice and realization, ask any questions you may have, and learn to meditate in a comfortable sitting posture. The introductory seminar is recommended for anyone new to Zen and seated meditation (zazen). We will teach you a simple breath practice to begin your meditation, and also introduce you to various practice forms we use at our center, should you desire to join our sitting group. Please wear subdued clothing comfortable for sitting cross-legged on cushions (although chairs are available if desired).
Following the seminar, you are welcome to attend any of our regularly scheduled sittings and events. While it is not required, you are especially encouraged to attend the meditation and Dharma talk that will follow the seminar that Sunday, by way of following up on what you’ve learned and sharing firsthand in our practice and community.
Our next introductory seminar is Saturday, March 28, from 9:30 a.m – 12:30 p.m. at 1856 S. Columbine Street in Denver. We do ask a $35 donation for the seminar, payable when you arrive (cash or check). Our seminars do also sometimes fill up early, so please click here to register in advance. We hope to see you soon!
