Houston Zen Center offers a number of classes especially
for beginners to meditation. Most classes are accessible
for beginners as well as advanced practitioners but
these are especially helpful for new meditators.

First (Or Second) Wednesday

On the first Wednesday of January (and the second Wednesday of February), an introduction to meditation evening is offered by Zen Center leaders Louise Dreyfus, Gayle Klaybor, Judson Dunn or Laura Salazar-Hopps. The evening begins at 6:30 pm. There is no charge, everyone is welcome. In March-November it will be the first Wednesday of the month.

Introduction to Zen Meditation

A series of 5 classes on the basics of meditation, including mindfulness, is offered throughout the year. The 5 class series is $100, scholarships are readily available, no one is turned away because of financial challenges. Occasionally a concise series of 3 classes is offered. The 3 class series is $75, scholarships are readily available.

Sunday Program

The Sunday program includes an introduction to newcomers at 9:20. The "Greeter" meets you at the door and will answer any questions you have throughout the morning.
