Meditation Instruction

Those new to Dharma Field and anyone unfamiliar with zen meditation, are encouraged to attend our free meditation instruction offerings. Very brief instruction on sitting meditation is offered weekly on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. Twice monthly, we offer a more thorough meditation instruction which includes walking meditation and meditation hall etiquette.

Meditation begins and ends with your intention. If you lose track of your intention to be awake, you’re no longer in meditation. If you intend to meditate, then you must do your meditation now. Meditation is simply to be here now. If you want to meditate, meditate now—even as you read this. . . .
