Welcome!

We are now conducting in-person services at 8AM on Sunday, please note our new hours and location!

Our Sunday service includes chanting the Heart Sutra, Universal Transference of Merit and three bows to the Three Treasures of Buddha, Dharma Sangha. We have two sessions of seated meditation broken by 5 minutes of kinhin or walking meditation. After the second session of Zazen we stand and chant the Bodhisattva Vows. The service, which lasts an hour, is typically followed by a Dharma reading and informal discussion for those who wish to stay. Afterwards we often go to the Bagatelle Bakery for social time. To receive regular updates, please email harold.sanki@gmail.com and we’ll add you to our e-mailing list.

All are welcome to our services. We ask that everyone who attends be vaccinated against COVID. If you cannot be vaccinated, we request that you wear a mask to protect others present as well as yourself. We encourage everyone who can safely do so to get vaccinated.

Beginning Wednesday, December 1, will have an ‘Intro to Zen’ session that begins at 7PM the first Wednesday of each month. Other activities include a half-day meditation retreat the 3rd Saturday of each month from 8AM to noon, a Zen reading and discussion group, and a Wednesday night Zoom service. We are also planning special services for Buddha’s Enlightenment Day (December 8) and New Year’s. If you are interested in any of these activities please contact our Sanki by email, telephone, text, or message us on our FB page to be placed on our email list.
