Beginning Instruction on Sunday Mornings at Zen Mountain Monastery

December 3, 2023

Beginning instruction in zazen and orientation to the Monastery on Sunday mornings is back again! 

At this time we do not require rapid tests for day visitors but you are welcome to mask; vaccination and boosters are suggested but not required.

Please enter through the front door of the Monastery and check in with the front door greeter when you arrive.

It’s wonderful to welcome new visitors to the Monastery for Sundays. The morning will begin with a liturgy service at 9am, which includes chanting and bowing, followed by instruction in zazen, zazen, and a talk by a teacher or senior student. We ask that participants stay for the entire length of the program.

If you need to cancel for any reason, please notify us in advance so we can offer the space to someone else.

This registration is only for new participants requiring beginning instruction and orientation to the Monastery. All others please use the regular Sunday Mornings at the Monastery registration.
