An Introduction to Zen Meditation and Practice
An Introduction to Zen Practice and to One Heart Sangha is available at the start of each morning and evening sitting days, and all-day Saturday sittings. To help us prepare for your coming, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your phone number.
The teaching will focus on the heart of Zen practice: zazen, or sitting meditation, and will include instruction on posture, attention to the breath, and ways of dealing with thoughts. Instruction on kinhin (walking meditation) will also be given, as well as a preparation for sitting with the sangha (community). Those participating in the introduction will then join the sangha in sitting for the remainder of the session.
Women's Dharma Study Group
One Heart Sangha offers a Women's Dharma Study group on various Sundays from 4-6 p.m. in Rockville, MD using the book, The Hidden Lamp, by Florence Caplow and Susan Moon. There is a sitting period, tea and discussion on zen women ancestors and practice. Please contact Martine Palmiter at email@example.com if interested.
