The heart of zen practice is zazen, or sitting meditation. We learn to use posture and breathing to help us clear away self-centered thinking, delusions and attachments, and to sit steadfastly, trusting the process, seeing into our true nature. Sitting practice and the path is personal and cannot be examined from a distance or from just reading texts. You must experience and apply practice of zazen in your daily life. Sitting with others assists us to train earnestly. Your personal engagement and effort in zen practice is what brings peace and realization.
At our sitting meditation periods, there is an opportunity to hear a dharma talk and engage with a teacher for discussions on your practice.
