In-Person Meetings

Empty Field is temporarily closed, and hopes to reopen on April 7, 2020, dependent upon government and health agency guidance.

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:

  • Tuesday evening, 5:30 – 6:30 PM (includes zazen and a reading/discussion period)
  • Saturday morning, 8:30 – 9:30 AM: Includes two zazen periods with walking meditation. Daisan (a short interview) with Dharma Holder Sandra Jizan Moore is available during the second sitting period.

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.
