This four-hour Zazenkai provides a welcoming space especially designed for elders and others who feel the need for less rigorous form and yet want to do serious Zen practice. The schedule will include about 2½ hours of sitting and walking meditation. All meditation postures, including reclining, are welcome. About half of the meditation will be untimed to encourage you to experiment with finding physically and mentally sustainable ways to do your own practice. There will also be a short service and a discussion around some aspect of practice relevant to the group. Sanzen will be offered.
Registration Opens September 1, and closes October 10.
