Sunday Services at Fire Lotus Temple

Open Dates

ZCNYC and Temple Abbess Hojin Sensei are pleased to be offering the popular Sunday program each week in person. This program is open to newcomers and experienced practitioners alike.

We’ll open our doors at 8:30am for caretaking. The program proper will begin at 9:30am with a liturgy chanting service, zazen, walking meditation (kinhin) and a talk by a teacher or senior student. The program will conclude around 12:30pm. We ask that participants stay for the entire length of the program. There is no fee to sign up, though any donation you are able to offer at the door would be greatly appreciated.

To attend our Sunday morning program, just visit this Calendly link and click on the appropriate date to pre-register. Spaces will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you are new to ZCNYC and have not had beginning instruction in seated meditation (zazen) in the Mountains and Rivers Order (MRO), use this additional calendly link to register for our orientation session (in addition to your registration for the Sunday morning program).

If you need to cancel for any reason, we would appreciate it if you could notify us. This will allow us to offer a space for someone else to attend.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us with the information provided.

Attendees must be fully vaccinated. Thank you.
