Getting Started

Intro to Zen 5/2017

Anyone interested in exploring  Zen practice at Kannon Do may simply attend any of the meditation sessions shown on the daily calendar.   There is no need to make an appointment or call ahead.    Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes.

The best time to come for the first time is currently on Saturday mornings.    One of the senior members will provide a brief tutorial on the posture and form of Zen meditation practiced at the center. Our Wednesday evening program is currently online. We plan to reinstate the in-person program soon. 

A more in-depth introduction is provided during the Introduction to Zen program,  held on the 4th  Saturday of each month from 10:30 AM– 12:30 PM.    This orientation includes a demonstration and discussion of the meditation posture, a tour of the center, and an opportunity to ask questions.

The weekly meditation schedule can be found here.
