Weekly Meditation Group Meetings, Mondays 7 – 9 p.m.
The meditation group meets regularly on Monday evenings at the Applegate Community Center in Applegate, California. The evenings include half hour periods of meditation, scripture recitation followed by tea and Dharma discussion. Meditation instruction is available for those new to the practice. The weekly meetings are open to anyone interested in learning more about this form of Zen Buddhism. There is no charge or membership required to participate. Unless otherwise noted, all meetings, classes and retreats take place at the Applegate Community Center, 18014 Applegate Road, Applegate, CA.
In early January we will continue reading and discussing the book You Have to Say Something by Dainan Katagiri. You needn’t be reading the book to come to the meditation group and join us in the discussion of the Dharma.
Later in January, the 21st – 30th, Reverend Vivian Grunenfelder will be with us for our annual intensive retreat period and will join the meditation group on Monday evenings of the 22nd and 29th. Please contact us for more information on activities planned during her visit. Rev. Vivian will lead us in a retreat on Saturday, January 28th. More information is available on the Retreats page.
The theme of this year’s intensive retreat is Your Very Mind is Buddha. Reverend Vivian has provided us with a list of readings that might be of interest. And, she reminds us that no reading need be done to come and participate.
