An introduction to Zen practice is offered on a regular basis for those who have not attended the New Orleans Zen Temple before. It is also useful for experienced practitioners to brush up the basics and to ask questions about Zen and Buddhism.
A one time donation of $30.00 provides you with the following:
- Instruction in Zen practice
- Lunch at the conclusion of the instruction
- One month as a guest member
Reservation are required 48 hours in advance of the introduction. Payment is preferred in advance but can be made on the morning of the introduction with permission.
Everyone is welcome and all levels of practice can be accommodated.
Please arrive by 8:00 am on the day of the introduction and plan to stay through lunch, which will end around 1:00pm.
Please contact us for the next introduction dates or other information.
Zazen is not an easy practice. Especially in the beginning, it requires
effort and determination. But it is not difficult either. Through patient,
daily repetition, anyone can practice Zen.
