It is recommended to wear comfortable (subdued color) clothing. We have zafus, zabutons, a few seiza benches and chairs if needed but feel free to bring your own cushion(s).
Kindly remove shoes by the door. Please arrive before the start times as we do begin promptly. If you need instruction, please email or call the number below and arrange a time.
If you need to leave zazen early, you can quietly slip out during kinhin (walking meditation).
Please let us know if you need orientation to zen practice or any other questions. Updates or changes in the schedule will be posted here.
The second Monday of the month Tendo Zenji, the head monk at Tahoma Zen Monastery will be in attendance offering support and instruction in zazen and other aspects of Zen form.
