Half-day Sitting, led by Rev. So On Jim Hare

07/07/2018 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Like a Snake in a Bamboo Tube – a half-day Zen sitting and Dharma talk

“Putting a snake in a bamboo tube” is an old simile for zazen.  Just as the snake naturally wants to wiggle and not be confined, so we often have a problem holding ourselves still.  Even when we stop the body, the mind continues to move.  So over and over again, we practice patience with our wiggly nature.  Sitting and walking, sitting and walking is an excellent method for realizing stillness.  We hope you will join us.


  • Photographs will be taken after the sitting.
  • Please bring a bag lunch if you would like to stay for informal lunch after the sitting.

*Our one-day and half-day sittings are generally held on the first Saturday of every month.
