      An Introduction to Zen Buddhism and Meditation

      Saturday, September 21st from 10am - 12 noon

      Join Keigetsu Martin for an introduction to Soto Zen meditation. This class will include a brief introduction to the origins of the Soto lineage of Zen practice, an overview of the main texts and teachings, and instruction in both seated and walking Zen meditation (zazen and kinhin).  It will include a couple of short zazen periods, and there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.

      No equipment needed, but if you have a favorite mat and cushion, you are welcome to bring them. Chairs will also be available. Just wear comfortable, loose or stretchy clothing that you can sit in, and let body and mind drop away.

      This class is offered by donation (Suggested $10)

      All experience levels and physical abilities are welcome.
