Throughout zazenkai we use the exact techniques that are followed in a Rinzai Zen Monastery. During zazenkai we practice zazen (seated meditation), chanting , walking meditation (kin-hin), silence, dokusan (private meeting w/teacher) and to conclude, a Dharma Talk (sermon) is given by Joriki Dat Baker. After closing, tea and fellowship are offered in the lounge.
Blue Mountain Zendo will continue to offer Zazenkai on Tuesdays in Bethlehem every other week.
Blue Mountain Zendo will be celebrating our new move to the Poconos in Northeastern Pennsylvania with a day focused on change and creating new pathways. Osho will offer a special purification ceremony, followed by zazen, the heart of Blue Mountain Zendo’s practice. We ask our Choboji Dharma Brothers and for your strong nen on this day to build upon our new foundation.
