With the whole body just as it is, who would get stuck in any place? …When you open your hand, it is just right. When your body is activated, it immediately appears. ~ Dogen
Come join us on a journey of Self discovery. We’ll meditate in community, have time for reflection, explore beautiful teachings, and take a step together to see what it means to be free.
Our annual fall sesshin is scheduled for November 1-4, 2018 and will be held at the Christian Renewal Center in Dickinson, TX. Sensei Ray Ruzan Cicetti of Empty Bowl Zendo will be our guiding teacher.
Empty Field Zendo is a community of people supporting each other in Zen meditation practice. Our emphasis is zazen (zah-zen, sitting meditation), which is a practice that can awaken us to our true nature without reference or dependency on any other factor, such as race, gender, or religious affiliation. People of all faiths, or none, are welcome.
We sit at Taylor Sport Chiropractic in Nassau Bay, in the Clear Lake area. The office is located at the east building entrance, and lies directly ahead when you enter the glass doors.
Our sitting schedule is:
- Tuesdays, 5:30-6:30 PM (includes zazen and a reading/discussion period)
- Saturdays, 8:30-9:30 AM (includes two zazen periods with kinhin in between)
Please plan on being on your cushion or in your seat 5 minutes before the start time. All are welcome.
There is no charge to come to the zendo. We gratefully accept contributions.
