About Zen Meditation

We live with so much pain and sadness, so much uncertainty and fear—but, if we understand the truth about reality, it doesn’t have to be a problem. Zen meditation lets us meet life as it is without adding anything extra. When you meet life on its own terms, you meet yourself as you actually are, and you awaken to your enlightened nature. Come and learn the way of wisdom, compassion and enlightenment at The Hub. Starting on May 2, we'll meet every Thursday from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Dogo Sensei, a Zen Buddhist monk who lives in Wyndford, will lead two 25-minutes sessions of zazen (sitting meditation), broken up by 10 minutes of kinhin (walking meditation). Then there will be a talk and discussion.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Do I have to be a Buddhist to attend?

A: No. The Buddha wasn’t a Buddhist. Everyone is welcome, whatever their religion or absence of religion. Zen isn’t something you believe, it’s something you do.

Q: What should I wear?
A: Any loose, modest, comfortable clothing.

Q: Do I have to sit on a cushion on the floor?
A: No. You can sit on a chair if you want.

Q: Will there be chanting and bowing?
A: Yes, some at the beginning and some at the end, but if you feel self-conscious you can chant silently.

Q: I’ve never done this before. What are the forms and rituals?
A: We’ll show you beforehand, and then we’ll stumble along as best we can. Zen practice has rightly been described as “one continuous mistake,” so don’t worry about forgetting anything. Just follow along.

Q: But I don’t know how to meditate!
A: Good! We’ll show you.
