We are back at the Moore Building, Room 116 at the Brite Divinity School.

Meetings

What do we do?

We practice silent, seated meditation (zazen) for 3 intervals of 25 minutes long. This is interspersed with 5 minutes of walking meditation (kinhin.) We close with some traditional zen buddhist chants and occasional discussion. Some practitioners come and go for one session and some stay for the whole evening.

If you are planning to attend a portion of the session, please plan to join or exit quietly during kinhin. Chairs, zabutons/zafus (cushions) or sieza (kneeling) benches are provided; or attendees are welcome to bring their own.

Newcomers

If you are new to zen and/or new to the group, we provide a brief orientation before our sessions. Please send an email to admin@fortworthzendo.org in order to setup a time before our normal weekly meditations and someone will be there to greet you and introduce you to our practice. Alternatively, The Maria Kannon Zen Center in Dallas, TX provides more in depth orientation classes including the history of zen, our tradition (Sanbo Kyodan), instruction from teachers and other benefits. Many of our members visit both centers regularly.
