    I stopped at the Soji Zen Center yesterday for the meditation training at 6:30 and nobody was there. Will you be open next week?

      Sorry about that Gavin but Soji was closed for its annual summer Sesshin. However, Soji is open again (excluding the 4th of course) and will be open for the meditation training on Thursday July 11th at 6:30pm. We hope to see you there.

    I just discovered this center online and I was wondering if meditation is still happening on Thursdays at 6:30? Some of the comments above are older.

      Elizabeth, not sure if someone replied to you or not, but yes, meditations still happen on Thursdays, with training beginning at 6:30, if you are new to meditation. Genjaku.
