Special Events

May 11-13… Cleveland Zazen Group Meditation Intensive

Roshi Bodhin Kjolhede returns for his annual Cleveland visit on the weekend of May 11-13. He will lead a Meditation Intensive which includes extended sittings, dokusan (private meeting with Roshi), chanting, silent meals, live teishos, and a great opportunity to intensify and re-commit to your Zen meditation practice with our sangha. (Application Deadline is May 7. Spaces are limited so please apply early.) Here's the application which can be printed and mailed with your check. 


You can attend full or part-time. Local folks sleep at home. For anyone coming from a significant distance, we may be able to arrange some additional housing in sangha homes, but space is limited. If you have questions, please call Susan at 216-932-3084.

May 19, 1 to 3pm...Introduction/Refresher to Zen Meditation Practice.
June 7, 7 to 9pm…Introduction/Refresher to Zen Meditation Practice. (Cancelled)

Interested in learning about Zen practice? Or perhaps you need a refresher in the basics of this form of meditation. Do you wonder about Mindfulness practices that are so popular these days? Can you practice Zen and still keep your own religious and cultural roots? We’ll address these and other questions through presentation, discussion, and a direct meditation experience. There is no moment like NOW to get started. Choose either of the above dates. (June 7 Introduction cancelled. Please watch this space for furture Introductions to Zen Meditation).
