|ZEN MEDITATION AND DHARMA TEACHING
Tuesday evenings, at 7 o'clock
First Church is in the heart of Boston's Back Bay, at the corner of Marlborough and Berkeley, just a couple blocks past the Boston Public Gardens and easily accessible to the Arlington Street or Boylston Street T stops. All events at Waldo are free.
Meetings always include Zen meditation and Zen liturgy and recitations, and sometimes include Dharma talks and disucssions, opportunities for one-to-one interviews (dokusan) as well as or other special events. You are invited to attend all or any portion of the activities—whatever works for your schedule and inclination. We sit 25-minute periods, and do a few minutes of walking meditation between periods. The evening starts formally at 7pm and usually winds up between 8:45 and 9:30, though you are free to leave at any time.
If you are new to Zen: Please send an email to our practice leader, Kate Hartland, to find out when the next beginner's group orientation will be taking place. Orientations are available only by prior arrangement and take place every other week. These orientations ofter brief introductions to zazen (the Zen style of meditation), to postures that will help you sit comfortably and in stillness, to meditation hall etiquette, to Zen liturgy, and to the Boundless Way Zen school. If any of that is new to you, please consider coming to an orientation!
Since several people often attend these orientations and there is a good bit of material to be covered in a brief period of time, please make every effort to arrive promptly at the scheduled time, out of courtesy to your fellow attendees.
