Introduction to Zen Meditation

3 Thursdays: September 27 - October 11, 2018; 7-8:30 pm

Taught by Gaelyn Godwin, a Zen Priest in the Soto Zen tradition, the Abbot of Houston Zen Center, this 5-class series provides an introduction to Zen meditation for beginners. It is open to people of all faiths.

The classes include a presentation on basic Zen philosophy and discussions of how to practice Zen in daily life, while walking, working, vacationing, shopping – that is, how to practice mindfully anytime, anywhere.

Each class includes meditation, beginning with 10 minutes during the first class, and working up to 30 minutes at the end of the series. The class series also includes the three other meditation postures: standing meditation, walking meditation, and reclining meditation.

Cost: $75 for the series. Payment may be made online (below) or at the first class. Scholarships are also available. No one is turned away for lack of funds.  Email to request a scholarship.
