Zazen This Week, 8.20.17

During these stressful and concerning times, please come join us for the simple discipline of silent sitting. The act of coming together to honor the age-old, fundamentally human activity of meditation and introspection is itself a protest against, and a healing of, the endless cycles of greed, hatred, and delusion that keep human beings trapped and suffering needlessly. Come support each other, and the practice of zazen in Albuquerque.

You can arrive early to help set up at 6:45. Zazen instruction is at 7. Zazen starts promptly at 7:15, but please be in your seat and settled a few minutes early.

After zazen, we will continue our study and discussion of Taigen’s book, Zen Questions, finishing the chapter, Zazen as Ritual Enactment. Discussion ends about 8:30 pm.
