Beginning Instruction on Sunday Mornings at Zen Mountain Monastery

September 22, 2024

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.

Please 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 instruction in zazen, zazen and kinhin (walking meditation) 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.

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/Orientation to the Monastery. All others please use the regular Sunday Mornings at the Monastery registration. Please see the program listings for the dates
