Tuesday Night @ 7am | 2 sits and a Birthday Party
Well kinda. It’s Hanamatsuri everyone! It’s the day we pretend to be real Buddhists for a bit and have a Spring Ceremony full of story-telling, chanting, and flower-offering. And we won’t be doing this in front of the bobble-head Buddha this time either! Abhilash is helping us get our act together. He got us *legitimate* baby Buddha statue to pour sweet tea over and throw flowers at.
So come on out! It should be fun.
Saturday Morning @ 9am | 3 sits and the Heart Sutra Service
Same Sit Time, Same Sit Channel. Come get your weekend kicked off right with an hour and half’s worth of sitting and the Heart Sutra to wrap it up. It’s great preparation for our Spring Retreat.
Zen Meditation Class Part 2 this Saturday @ 11 am
So have you been to our Zen 101 class and are curious to hear more?
Great! In that case, please attend the Part 2 of our Zen Meditation Class. In which, we will:
- Dive deeper in to the teachings that make Zen . . . well, Zen.
- Discuss what the point is of all the Zendo protocols
- What our chants are and why we do them
And, of course, more amazing sitting.
$10 for the class if you can, ok if you can’t. Let us know you are coming at email@example.com.
Teachings? Protocol? Chants? Phish-posh! Isn’t the sitting this most *important* part?
Why, yes it is. If you want sitting with no fluff, check out the Nashville Secular Meditation Group.
It’s full of some of our favorite people and they meet at our zendo at 9am on Sundays.
