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

We meet every Tuesday from 6:45–8:15pm Atlantic (5:45 Eastern; 2:45 Pacific).

1st and 3rd Tuesday: zazen, vows, discussion

Chant Book for Tuesday Ceremonies

When a month has five Tuesdays, we'll let you know what we have planned for that last week.
