Weekly Sunday Morning Program - 10am to Noon (pausing for the summer)

Join us for our weekly Sunday morning program with meditation, Zen chanting, and a Dharma talk with discussion by Red Cedar Zen and visiting speakers. Whether you are an old hand at this or you are just Zen-curious and know nothing about Zen practice, please come! 

Note: We'll pause Zen Alive! after Nomon Tim Burnett's talk on June 6th for the summer to make room for Sunday outdoor activities. We look forward to seeing you in September.

ABOUT ZEN ALIVE!

We always ask questions. What is real and what is delusion? Living an examined life can be a pain in the neck. And then, there is the point where Zen practice, community, and our everyday lives meet. Life encountered directly! Before we have time to slap the good or bad label on it, we see it all: beautiful sunrises, bad service, political news, global warming, our fast-paced digital life, love, time with friends, sickness and aging and death... all happening at the same time. Issa said it so well in his haiku: 

The world of dew
Is the world of dew.
And yet, and yet—

—Kobayashi Issa (1763 - 1828)

We will explore this intersection of life, this world, and stories of awakening on Sundays during Zen Alive! Local and guest Zen Buddhist teachers will explore awakening, enlightenment, and practice-realization. 

And, as we said in the beginning: "Living an examined life in some ways is a pain in the neck." Maybe we think everything should be different from how it is, and at other times we believe everything should stay forever exactly like this! And yet, and yet... it changes. Always. Please come to help us explore this theme through the practice of sitting meditation (zazen), walking meditation (kinhin), dharma talk, and  conversation.

UPCOMING SPEAKERS:

Sunday, May 23: Hoka Chris Fortin
Sunday, May 30: 
Sunday, June 6: Nomon Tim Burnett
