The way of Zen is very simple: how one keeps one's mind, moment after moment after moment. Zen practice urges us to be free and flexible with our engagement of life, which also helps to loosen our grip on ideas, beliefs and concepts. We don't encourage a special mind state; it is not a "tuning out" or "blissing out.” Instead, Zen encourages "tuning in" and realizing the miracle of being alive, right in this moment.
Our weekly, drop-in practice features alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation and a short teaching. All levels of experience, including none, are welcome, and instruction is enthusiastically offered to beginners (please arrive 10-15 minutes early if possible). Meditation cushions and chairs are provided.
Pricing: True Nature Zen Sangha offers our sessions in accordance with the Buddha’s practice of dana (generosity). Donations of any amount are received with gratitude.
