On the second Saturday of each month, Brooklyn Zen Center’s schedule is designed for those who are new to Zen and meditation as well as regulars who may have questions or just want to discuss the practice. Meditation periods are a little shorter so there are more opportunities for questions and discussion than is the case during other Saturdays.
Although all are welcome to join us at anytime during our weekly meditation schedule, those new to meditation and Zen practice are encouraged to come on Second Saturdays. As with any other Saturday, regulars are of course welcome.
The Second Saturday schedule is:
8:45am – Doors Open
9:00am – Beginner’s Meditation Instruction
10:00am – Break
10:20am – Meditation
10:40am – Open Discussion with Questions and Responses
11:00am – Talk with Q&R (or another period of meditation if no talk)
11:40am – Guided Service
12:00pm – Community Lunch
