Weekly Practice

Our Nickerson St. Zendo

We're located on north Queen Anne, along the ship canal

Each moment of zazen is equally wholeness of practice, equally wholeness of realization.  This is not only practice while sitting, it is like a hammer striking emptiness: before and after, its exquisite peal permeates everywhere.
