Newcomers

We are located at Ekoji Buddhist Sangha, 3411 Grove Ave, Richmond, VA 23221. Here is a map >>.

For your first visit to Richmond Zen, we recommend you attend one of our orientation sessions that include Zen meditation instruction and introduction to zendo forms used to cultivate mindfulness. The session will include a 30 minute period of zazen and chant service in the zendo. Orientation is offered twice monthly on the first Wednesday and third Sunday of the month. See our upcoming events here>>.

Newcomers may also attend any regular meeting without having orientation. However, we will not be able to provide instruction. Please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled meeting time. Bells signal the beginning and end of meditation. Practice mindfulness by observing others and harmonizing your activity.
