Saturday Introduction to Zen Practice


We are now able to offer an online Newcomer Orientation. Our orientation is usually attended by a mixture of people who are brand new to the practice of sitting in meditation, as well as more seasoned individuals who are interested in learning about this particular center's approach to practice. Thus, the orientation will include a mixture of introductory zazen (sitting meditation) instruction, as well as some meditations that are emphasized at ZCSD. Policies and procedure will also be briefly reviewed. Below are the dates for the Virtual Newcomer Orientation along with the appropriate link. The Newcomer Orientation will begin at 9:00 a.m. to approximately 10:20 a.m.. At that time, you are encouraged to join in the remainder of the Center's Saturday morning schedule:
