Introduction to Meditation and Koans: First Mondays 

Whether you've always wanted to learn to meditate or it only just occurred to you or you want to refresh your memory and your practice, this monthly class offers a chance to get simple directions, ask questions, and perhaps to set down the burdensome question of "Am I doing this right?"


On the first Monday evening of every month, we will be offering this class at the Santa Rosa Creek Zendo from 6 to 7pm.


What is meditation? How can I have a regular practice? What do koans have to do with it? This event is free of charge, although donations are gratefully accepted. If you would like more information or to reserve a spot email
