Open Sunday is a quarterly program for SAZC designed to offer more time for meditation and fellowship.
From 1:00-3:00 pm, the zendo is open for zazen or walking meditation. You can come and go freely at any time during those hours. There is also an opportunity for work practice during that time--there are always jobs small and large that need doing.
Beginner's instruction and prior experience are helpful but not required; a very brief introduction to meditation will be available in the front room if needed.
From 3:00-4:00pm, the entire center is open for tea, conversation, and fellowship for newcomers and members alike. Short tours of the center and grounds will also be offered to anyone in the community who would like to find out more about the center or Soto Zen practice.
