Open House

Every month (usually on the first scheduled sitting) we hold an Open House. It is an opportunity to stop by and get a glimpse of what formal Zen practice looks like. The schedule is as follows:

  • 7:30 pm Opening
  • 7:35 pm Zazen – seated meditation
  • 7:50 pm Kinhin – walking meditation
  • 7:55 pm Welcome talk – a brief introduction by the Abbot or a senior sangha member
  • 8:10 pm Closing  – followed by informal reception with refreshments

During the social part of the evening visitors are encouraged to mingle with the sangha members, get acquainted, and ask questions. We will try to answer the questions as best as we can. This is a great opportunity for newcomers as well as seasoned individuals to check out the  Dharma Cloud Hermitage.
