Please join us for an evening of meditation, and discussion. We start with introductions and some guided instruction leading into silent meditation. We then practice slow walking meditation; followed by serving and savoring a small cup of herbal tea in a traditional manner. We end with about a half hour of informal discussion of meditation, Zen Buddhist teachings and spiritual practice in our lives. Classes tend to be small, perfect for a friendly and informal introduction to this practice.
Teaching, silent seated and walking meditation, tea drinking meditation, discussion
All levels welcome.
I read the book, Zen Mind, Beginners Mind while in college , and it set me on the track of meditating and studying Soto Zen ever since. In the 1980’s, I practiced Zen in Minneapolis with Katagiri Roshi, a Japanese Zen Teacher.
I was later ordained as a Buddhist Priest, and in 2010 was conferred as a Zen Teacher, registered with the Soto Zen Buddhist Association. (see www.szba.org for more information on Soto Zen) I founded and lead Prairie Mountain Zen Center in northern Colorado; and I founded and direct the Meditation Place in Longmont, Colorado.
