Zazenkai takes place on the first Sunday of each month. See the next date here>>

Zazenkai is a half-day meditation intensive. It includes seated meditation, walking meditation, chanting, silent breakfast, temple cleaning, sutra copying or arts practice, and breaks.

The schedule includes the regular Sunday morning periods of zazen. Everyone is welcome for any part of the schedule, but if you plan to attend the whole morning starting at 6 am, please register by email so we have enough food for breakfast. See the full schedule below.
