Once a month, we have a beginner's orientation before service, but the time is short and we focus on teaching the basic forms to help beginners through their first sevice. We have little time for the why behind it all.
Our Zero to Zen beginning class fills in that gap. We take 90 minutes to go over the forms in more detail and present some basic tenents of Buddhism and Zen. We field all your questions and give very detailed instructions for sitting zazen (our form of meditation) and tips for getting the most out of it. We even send you home with a Buddhist cheat sheet.
The class is free of charge, but we ask for an RSVP so we can plan. If something inside is calling you to look deeper at this life, this is a great place to start.
This class is co-taught by Kanshin Allison and Alden Gannon.
