If you are new to Zen Buddhism, there are several opportunities each month to receive zazen instruction, and ask questions.

Every Sunday morning zazen instruction is offered at 9:00 AM.  

If you can’t stay for the entire practice period, don’t worry. You can always leave during periods of kinhin (walking meditation) or before the service or dharma talk.
