Where: Nyack American Legion Hall

What:

  • We begin as needed by going over posture, breath, and Zen meditation methods, and with any questions about meditation practice. There are often short readings from well-respected Zen teachers (ancient and current) and teachers from other Buddhist traditions and non-Buddhist ones as well.

  • We then get settled into a comfortable, supported posture, paying careful attention that our bodies are aligned well. People sit in a variety of postures: in chairs, on cushions, or kneeling.

  • Once settled, we sit still in silence for 2 rounds of 20 minutes each with a short, silent 5-minute break in between, to walk or stretch.

  • We finish with time for sharing experiences or to ask questions.

  • Chairs, yoga mats, and yoga blankets are provided or feel free to bring your own cushions.

  • Please be 18 or older or accompanied by a guardian.
