New to Zen Buddhism or interested in learning? New York Zendo Shobo-ji offers city dwellers the opportunity to experience traditional Zen practice in the midst of their daily lives, a true oasis of deep stillness in the heart of Manhattan. Every Thursday evening The Zen Studies Society offers an Introduction to Zazen. The evening covers the basics of zazen (Zen meditation): posture, breathing, and concentration. Beginners will also learn the form used at New York Zendo: bowing, chanting, and walking meditation. Join us!
Reservations are not necessary. We ask for a $10 suggested contribution. Doors open at 6:15pm, and instruction begins promptly at 6:45pm. For questions, click here or call 212-861-3333.
All in-person attendees must comply with current ZSS Covid Protocols.
