We now sit zazen Tuesday evenings at 6:30 AND Sunday MORNINGS AT 7:30 

WE ARE GOING TO BE MORE VIGOROUS IN ASKING FOR DONATIONS!  SINCE NO ONE INVOLVED IN (OR OUTSIDE) THE CENTER IS GETTING ANY MONEY AT ALL OUT OF THIS, UNDERSTAND THAT ALL DONATIONS GO TO RENT, HEATING, COOLING AND WATER.

... AND OCCASIONALLY FANS AND BUDDHA STUFF.

we WILL BE RE-INTRODUCING CHANTING PRACTICE AS PART OF OUR SERVICES.

 

this IS A FOUNDATIONAL ZEN PRACTICE.  LESS A DOGMATIC RITUAL OF RECITING BUDDHIST PRINCIPLES, IT BECOMES A CHANCE TO JOIN WITH THE GROUP IN SHARING THE PRESENT MOMENT THROUGH SOUND AND BREATH.  an EXPRESSION OF MUTUAL SUPPORT THAT TRANSCENDS THE WORDS.

 

(but LET'S FACE IT, it's EXTREMELY COOL TO BE PART OF A PRACTICE THAT HAS LEGITIMATE CLAIM TO A 3500 YEAR  LINEAGE OF SOUND AND TONE POEMS.)

 

cOME, JOIN WITH US AND EXPLORE THIS PRACTICE YOURSELF.
