Drop-in Sitting and Study Group


Wed, Jul 3, 2024

The Drop-in Sitting and Study Group meets weekly from 7:10 to 9:30 PM on Wednesdays. It
includes a 35-minute period of zazen meditation in the Zendo, followed by an hour of reading and
discussion, tea and refreshments in the Community Room. The group particularly
welcomes newcomers to Zen Buddhist practice or folks new to the Berkeley Zen Center. It also provides an
opportunity for practitioners to sit and study together on an ongoing basis. We meet every Wednesday
except for the five-day Spring Practice Period sesshin (retreat) in June, the annual seven-day Buddha’s
Enlightenment sesshin in December and during the two-week interim period during the December
holidays. We also maintain a Google group to share reading materials we are studying, announce other
BZC events and issues related to logistics.

The group is facilitated by a BZC Priest, Ikushin Gerry Oliva.
Gerry can be contacted at gryoliva@gmail.com for further information.
