Zazen is a style of meditation primarily practiced by Zen Buddhists in the Japanese and Korean traditions. This quiet style of meditation focuses primarily on sitting upright, usually on a cushion, and focusing on your breath to aid in clearing the mind and bringing more mindfulness into your life. We’ll start the practice with a few moments of movement followed by sitting for approximately 20 minutes in silence together. Beginners welcome, but you may want to watch this introductory video to build up to sitting for a full 20 minutes in this style. Special meditation cushions (zafu) are not necessary – you can sit on a folded blanket or towel, stiff pillow or even a straight backed chair. Come join our sangha!
