Newcomers or Visitors … You are Welcome!
If you have not had prior experience with meditation, we suggest that you arrive about 15 minutes early for some instruction on sitting. Dress casually in comfortable, loose-fitting attire – dark clothing without graphics if possible.
Please be seated 5 minutes before the sit begins.
If you are unable to be there for the start of the service, the best practice is to enter during the walking meditation periods. If you need to leave, it is also in keeping with etiquette to leave during the walking meditation periods or before the dharma talk.
Priests and teachers are available after the dharma talk for further discussion or questions.
If you have any questions you’d like answered ahead of time, please reach out to us via email!
For directions to our in person location, please use the map on the home page. We have made the commitment to continue providing the hybrid online/in person services through Zoom.
