Sunday Mornings at Zen Mountain Monastery
April 7, 2024
This registration is for returning visitors who have already received beginning instruction in meditation at the Monastery or at Fire Lotus Temple in Brooklyn.
If this is your first time visiting the Monastery, in lieu of this registration, we ask you to register for Beginning Instruction/Orientation to the Monastery, which is offered every other Sunday morning and on the 2nd Wednesday evening of each month. Please see the program listings for these dates.
Please plan to arrive by 8:45 am, enter through the front door of the Monastery and check in with the front door greeter when you arrive.
The morning will begin with a liturgy chanting service at 9am, followed by zazen, walking meditation (kinhin) and a talk by a teacher or senior student. We ask that participants stay for the entire length of the program, which concludes around 12:00pm. Everyone is also invited to stay for a community lunch at the end of the morning program.
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. You can see our updated health protocol here.
