Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Zazen (seated meditation) begins at 7:00 p.m. and lasts 20 minutes. It is followed by 10 minutes of kinhin (walking meditation), followed by another 20 minutes of zazen at 7:30. Meditators may choose to remain seated during kinhin for an extended meditation period. We end the practice at 7:50 p.m.
If you are new to zazen please plan to arrive at 6:30 p.m. This will give us time for an introduction to meditation and to orient you with the Zendo.
We have zafus (round cushions), benches and chairs available. You may also bring your own if you prefer.
There are no costs for participating though we are thankful for donations. Great Wind Zendo is a 501(c)(3) organization and contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
