What is Zen, after all? What is zazen? What does the word mean? How can I learn to meditate and be comfortable? What is the point? Why do we bow  to and away from our seats? How do I enter the zendo and how move in it?  What does the word zendo mean? What are all those figures on the altar? I can’t imagine sitting all day! How do people do that? How do they eat  in the zendo? What is oryoki eating? What does it mean to have a teacher?  What is a sangha? Am I welcome? What if I make a mistake?  And on and on our worries and questions roll.

Come get answers and learn how to establish your practice. We will learn a  bit of history and a lot about the forms and practices of Zen. This will be a gentle introduction, for beginners or those who want a refresher.

Questions and concerns invited.
