Zazen Instruction

In-Person Zazen Instruction and Beginner Orientation is Back!

We are now offering meditation instruction and orientation every Saturday morning, at 8:40 am, at BZC (1933 Russell St) to anyone vaxxed and boosted.  Please bring your vax/booster card, and KN95/KN94 mask if you have one. We have extras if you need one.

We share how we meditate and also some details about how to move around in our zendo (meditation hall) and join services (bowing and chanting).

No need to sign up; all are welcome!

We now offer online zazen instruction on the 2nd Saturday of the month only:  8:40 to 9:20 am.  Note that the instruction is NOT in the online zendo, but in its own separate online zoom room:
