"Am I inviting mindfulness into each moment, or indulging in mindless repetition of the forms of meditation practice, mistaking the form for the essence of it?"

Center's Description
Today MZMC works to maintain a vibrant, welcoming community committed to the teaching and practice of Zen Buddhism. Everyone is welcome at MZMC, regardless of practice experience. First-time visitors, those just beginning a meditation practice and long time students (current and returning) are all welcome. Visitors who may be expecting to find an exotic group of people at MZMC are sometimes surprised to find that the sangha is made up of average, householding Americans who are committed to Buddhist practice. Everyone can develop a mindfulness practice that works for him or her, and people who participate at MZMC are encouraged to develop practices that are comfortable for them. They may include traditional Soto Zen Buddhist activities, or activities from other mindfulness traditions, or both. Participants study and practice at their own pace. There are many ways to participate, connect, and get to know others at MZMC. Activities include zazen, lectures, work practice (volunteering in a way that's meaningful for the participant), retreats, classes and workshops on Buddhist studies and daily-life topics, and practice help and support from teachers and sangha members.
