at Nickerson St. Zendo, (101 Nickerson Street, Suite 130, Seattle, WA, 98109)
Seattle Soto Zen welcomes you to take your first steps in Zen practice. In just one evening, we'll give you all you need to know to start your practice with us.
Zen practice is based in the aspiration that all people everywhere find peace in their lives. We sit quietly or enact the graceful forms of our tradition, always gently holding our experience in a caring embrace. Joy or sorrow, safety or fear. All experiences are welcome here. Little by little, almost miraculously, a spontaneous caring arises for both self and other. A forgiveness for failings that were never really there in the first place. A recognition that like everyone around us, we are deeply human -- as perfect as we are flawed.
With continued practice, we begin to heal ourselves, our families, our friends and the world around us. More than ever, no matter what you look like, feel or believe, we can all use a little healing.
