Introduction to Zen Meditation Are you new to Meditation, Zen Buddhism, or the Center?
Our popular introductory class is now online!
MZMC offers our four-part Introduction to Zen Meditation online via Zoom each Sunday morning from 10 – 11 a.m. or Tuesday evening from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. You can attend this class on Zoom or, beginning August 8, in-person at MZMC. From that date on, the class will be offered simultaneously on Zoom and in-person each Sunday and Tuesday.
For Introduction to Zen Meditation join us any Sunday morning or Tuesday evening and then return the next three Sundays or the next three Tuesday evenings to complete the four-week cycle. The four parts are not sequential, so you may attend them in any order. You are welcome to attend as many sessions as you like, but attend all four for the best overview. Each session includes meditation instruction and teaching on how meditation and Zen relate to daily life. These classes are open to the public by donation. No registration is necessary.
The class briefly covers the basics of traditional Zen forms: bows, entries and exits, walking meditation, etc. This offering is designed for the newcomer who'd like an overview of forms to help them be more familiar and comfortable joining us for morning zazen or one of our sesshins. It's a good opportunity to become familiar with the forms, stay in practice, or brush up after some time away. The same information is covered each time.
