Introduction to Zen Meditation

5 classes – Thursday evening, July 21st, 28th, Aug 4th, 11th & 18th

From 7:30 to 8:45 pm

This class series provides an introduction to Zen meditation for beginners. It is open to people of all faiths.

The classes include a presentation of the basic principles of Zen and zazen meditation, and discussions of how to practice Zen in daily life – that is, how to find inner peace anytime, anywhere.

Each class includes zazen meditation, beginning with 10 minutes during the first class, and working up to 30 minutes at the end of the series.

The classes are led by Bishop Daigaku Rummé, a Zen priest in the Soto Zen tradition, who is the head priest of Zenshuji and director of the Soto Zen Buddhism North America Office.

Cost: $70 for the series ($35 for temple members). Register by calling Zenshuji (213) 617-0100 or by email to webmaster@zenshuji.org.

Payment may be made at the first class. Scholarships are also available. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
