soji zen center

Introduction to Meditation

February 5, 2022 | 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

The activity of zazen (Japanese for “seated meditation”) lies at the very heart of Zen Buddhist practice and reflects the boundless wisdom of Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment thousands of years ago. This subtle and profound practice has the power to uproot delusion, but navigating the challenges produced by our conditioned minds is no easy task. In this workshop, Anthony Nentetsu Yuschak will present the foundational principles of zazen, provide participants with detailed instruction, and allow ample time for questions and discussion.

The suggested donation for this event is $25 for members and $30 for non-members. Please register by February 4 by completing the registration form and making payment through the Soji PayPal site (please select the “sending to a friend” option so that payment can be recieved without fee).
