50th Anniversary

Rochester Zen Center

Here are details for the next scheduled all-day sitting:

All-day Sitting Sunday, January 28

Daily sittings at the Center are great, but each all-day sitting is a chance to wade further into the waters of zazen. You’ll get a break from stress, a taste of a sesshin day, and maybe even a new perspective on your mind and life. Besides the usual sitting that will run from 8:30 to around 10:30, there are three other blocks of formal sitting scheduled.  While it’s all right to come just to part of the day, we do ask that sitters commit to stay for all of the two or three rounds of sitting in any block.  Here’s the full schedule for the day:

6:15 am                Zazen

7:30                      Breakfast (Center will provide)

8:30                      Zazen & Teisho

10:30                    Brunch in the dining room

11:00                    Zazen

12:50 pm              Lunch break (bring your own)

1:30-3:00              Zazen
