During this three-hour class, you can meet our teachers, hear a little about the history of Zen, 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. We ask that you wear subdued clothing comfortable for sitting cross-legged on cushions, although chairs are available for those not used to sitting on a mat.
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.
The next seminar will be offered Saturday, Sept. 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Rocky Mountain Miracle Center (1939 South Monroe Street in Denver, just off of Buchtel Boulevard). We do ask a $35 donation for the seminar, payable when you arrive. If you would like to attend, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org .
