This Week in Zen: Wanna know how I got these scars?

Tuesday Night Sit @ 7 || 2 rounds of sitting + discussion 

Tonight, we shall discuss when, if ever, is it appropriate to give yourself one wicked facial scar to get into a monastery? I’ll do my best to unpack the classic koan: My half-decade of experience wrestling with it and what it really means to sacrifice for one’s practice today.

Saturday Morning Sit @ 8 || 3 rounds of sitting + the Heart Sutra Service

Get in the sits, see the smoke and robes that go into a group recitation of what is basically an ancient revered 'gotcha' joke, and stay for the coffee, conversation, and baked goods. You guys like Pumpkin Muffins? I got a recipe I’m just dying to try out.

Intro To Zen Class this Saturday at 10am!

In the class, we give you a basic overview of Buddhist history, briefly breakdown what Zen is, and (the part that *really* matters) instruct you on how to do Zen meditation. Please bring $10 donation for the center if you can swing it. If not, still come. We'll be glad to see everyone.
