Our group meets weekly on Mondays from 7-8:30pm except for selected holidays. Meetings take place in Rm. 112 (bottom level) of the Bloomington UU Church unless otherwise specified. We can provide you with meditation cushions, or you may sit on a chair if that is more comfortable. If it is your first time attending, we ask that you attend a brief, 15-minute orientation before your first meeting.
7pm-7:25pm Sitting Meditation (Zazen)
7:25pm-7:35pm Walking Meditation (Kinhin)
7:40pm-8:00pm Sitting Meditation (Zazen)
8:00pm-8:30pm Discussion, Dharma Talks, and Fellowship
If you arrive after sitting meditation has started, we ask you to please wait and enter the hall during our transition into walking meditation, or until the second period of sitting meditation. If you need to leave at anytime, please be as quiet as possible so that we can maintain an appropriate meditative space.
There is no cost to attend, however, if you would like to assist with costs to maintain the space, and for supplies for the group, any donation (dhana) would be appreciated. There will be a box for cash and check donations at the front of the room. Checks should be made out to UU Church Bloomington with a note at the bottom specifying it is for the zen group.
