ON A CLASS ASSIGNMENT?
As a student, you are welcome to visit the Zen center to fulfill a class assignment.
The best way to learn about Zen is to try it for yourself. We encourage you to participate in the free Thursday night Introduction to Zen class. You'll learn the basics of Zen meditation and also have a chance to ask questions at the Dharma talk that follows.
Then, visit the center again for a period of daily practice. You may also be able to ask questions of a senior practitioner, if one is available during your visit.
