Morning Zazen

Every morning 6:30–7am, we sit in zazen, recite the Bodhisattva vows together, then move into the day. 

Beings are countless; I vow to free them all.
Delusions are inexhaustible; I vow to put an end to them.
Dharma gates are infinite; I vow to enter them.
The awakened way is unsurpassable; I vow to embody it.

We also offer zazen 9:30-10am Monday–Friday.

Tuesday Evenings

Tuesdays 6:45–8:15pm Atlantic (5:45 Eastern; 2:45 Pacific), we meet for zazen, chanting of vows, a dharma talk, and discussion. 

First Thursdays

The first Thursday of each month, 6:45–7:45pm Atlantic (5:45 Eastern; 2:45 Pacific), ZNS hosts a community gathering. We announce each month's offering on our Facebook page. Sometimes it is a discussion around a given topic. Other times, it's a "Chant & Check-in": a short period of zazen, chanting, and open conversation. The chants we use are available here.

There is no charge, though we are always grateful for donations. Newcomers and longtime practitioners of all traditions welcome.
