For people interested in finding a lay (non-monastic) community, we offer the opportunity to practice with experienced meditation practitioners.
Our primary practice is zazen, or Zen meditation. Zazen is the heart of Zen practice and is at the same time the full expression of our inherent enlightenment as well as the means of uncovering it.
Zazen can take place in stillness (sitting meditation) and in activities such as walking meditation and work practice. Therefore, we encourage a quiet, meditative atmosphere and use many traditional Zen forms to help us in that regard.
Three 25-minute sitting rounds with walking meditation in between. Private instruction for Zen Center members.
Formal Zen experience required. See “Notes” below.
$5 – $10 suggested donation.
Cash or checks accepted at the door.
Make checks payable to Zen Center of Denver.
No entry after 7:00pm.
If you are already familiar with Zen mediation and can sit quietly without moving for 25 minutes, please arrive by 6:40pm to become familiar with our practice forms.
If you are not familiar with Zen meditation please attend an Introduction to Zen Workshop. Visit ZenCenterofDenver for information.
