Meditation and Discussion Groups
The Zen Monastery Peace Center offers weekly meditation and discussion groups throughout the country and abroad. All groups use readings from books written by Cheri Huber as the basis for the group discussions. These groups present an extraordinary opportunity to practice with Sangha locally and provide a powerful focus for deepening practice. All are welcome to participate.
There are currently two types of groups being offered. The first type we are calling “Meditation Groups.” These are facilitated by those qualified to teach meditation. Meditation Groups begin with a 30-minute formal sitting meditation followed by a facilitated group discussion. The other type of group we call “Discussion Groups.” These are facilitated by those who are in training as facilitators in our practice. Discussion Groups begin with a short guided meditation followed by a facilitated group discussion. All group facilitators receive regular guidance and support from the Monastery.
Weekly groups are offered at the following locations. If you’d like to participate, please contact the facilitator via email for details and to arrange an orientation.
Meditation Groups: Individual meditation instruction can be arranged.
