Note: We will not be meeting during the month of July. We will resume our weekly sittings on August 6th, 2014.

meet that need, as well as for those who want to refresh or deepen their

responsive and flexible mind while keeping your heart open. Zen practice is also a way of not being caught by our stories but instead to embrace and understand our stories and the paradoxical nature of being alive.
