On Thursday, October 13, a new sitting group will begin, led by Steve Weintraub. Steve is a long time Zen Center practitioner, having begun sitting at Sokoji in 1968. The group will be meeting each Thursday evening at St. John’s Presbyterian Church.

“I am looking forward to beginning this Zen practice group in the Presidio neighborhood. I want to offer the opportunity of a weekly sitting group, where we can practice zazen together, and listen to and discuss the dharma, in a small group ‘neighbohood zendo’ format. I feel that practicing together in this way encourages the arising and development of our way-seeking mind.”

Each Thursday evening will consist of two 20-30 minute periods of zazen followed by a dharma talk and discussion. All are welcome, experienced practitioners and complete beginners.

For more information, call Steve at 415.389.6208.
