This workshop provides basic, practical information including how to do zazen (Zen meditation), how to establish a home practice, how to make everyday activities practice, the aims of practice, and what programs are available for practice through GPZC. Attending online is also available, although in-person participation is preferred in order to be able to more readily try out different meditation postures using GPZC’s cushions, benches, and chairs. Currently, we are not requiring masking, proof of vaccination or testing prior to attending. Please check with our COVID guidelines for any changes.
We invite those who attend this Introductory Workshop to follow up by attending the four-part series of Aspects of Zen Practice classes that take place once a month on Sundays from 5:30 – 6:30. We also encourage you to join us for any Sunday night sitting in Palatine. (See details on our Events Calendar )
Suggested donation is $25. Those experiencing financial hardship can contribute what is comfortable for them. Advance registration is required.
