Zazenkai

On the third Sunday of the month SZC offers an extended meditation experience (zazenkai) at our city zendo.

Zazenkais are half a day of intensive zazen and a Dharma talk, from 8.30am to noon. All are welcome. If you have not practiced with us, please arrange an orientation before attending a zazenkai.

Coming together to do zazen for an extended period provides an opportunity to deepen our practice. Zazenkai can be an introduction to longer practice, and is a good preparation for sesshin (retreats) where we sit for multiple days. Zazenkai is a rich practice format that includes a dharma talk given by a teacher or senior student, a sutra service, extended zazen and dokusan (interview with the teacher).
