In this series you will be introduced to Zen Buddhist teachings and zazen (meditation). Through your own experience, you will gain some understanding of how establishing a meditation practice can change your life. Each week, we will build on the week before, deepening our experience together.
Upon his enlightenment, Buddha was seated in meditation. Zen practice returns to that same seated meditation over and over again. For over 2500 years, that meditation has continued, from generation to generation. It is a very simple practice. However, a description about what zazen is cannot help you. Practice is the way to true intimacy with all of life.
