We practice zazen (Zen meditation) Saturday mornings in the Dustbowl Dojo at the Forum of St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Visitors are welcome, and sitting cushions are provided. We suggest wearing loose clothing - yoga pants or sweats, for instance.

Visitors practice free of charge. For continuing sangha members, the suggested donation is $35 per month ($15 for students).

If you are interested in childcare, see our childcare policy and contact us to request.

Let us know if you plan on visiting so that we can confirm seating space. We look forward to practicing with you.
