1-Day Introduction to Zen Meditation (7/11)

The one day Zen retreat held at the American Bodhi Center was Saturday, July 11, 2014. The retreat was a great opportunity to experience this type of mediation. Many of us on there had never meditated in the Zen Tradition before. One of the differences noted about Zen tradition was that we would all move into walking meditation every 30 minutes. We walked for 10 minutes all together as a group and then we returned back to sitting meditation.

As we sat in our meditation positions, the teacher talked us through many Zen teachings. The teachings brought up all kinds of insightful thoughts for me. As a Buddhist it is always refreshing to learn a new way to meditate. I look forward to another Zen retreat sometime in the near future.
