‘Alaneo Zendo, established in 2014, is a meditation group recognized in the United States and Japan as part of the Soto Zen lineage. It is a practice-based and meditation-oriented community which offers Zazen on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm. Our sittings consist of two 25-minute periods of Zazen separated by 10 minutes of walking meditation. We have zafu and zabuton for anyone wishing to sit in the traditional style or there are plenty of chairs, if you prefer. We strongly recommend that you call prior to your first sitting for personal instruction about our procedures and practices.
For those looking for more, we also offer a short service after Zazen on Thursdays followed by an informal class which examines the Dharma in all its various aspects. Questions and discussion are highly encouraged.
