While Buddhism is classified as a religion, many recognize that the time-honored Buddhist teachings are more about a way of life than a religion. There is no deity in Buddhism, so it can be easily integrated into your life, whether you are practicing another religion or not.

Zen Meditation

Tuesdays at 7:00pm - 8:30pm 

Cost: $5 - $10 Suggested Donation.  For full description and to RSVP visit our Meetup calendar. 

 

The primary practice of the Zen Center of Denver is zazen, seated meditation. Zazen is the heart of Zen practice and is both the full expression of inherent enlightenment and the means of uncovering that enlightenment. However, Zen practice is not just sitting in stillness; it is expressed in all our daily activities. This is particularly important at a lay (non-monastic) center.

The Zen Center of Denver is associated with the Diamond Sangha, an international affiliation of practice centers and teachers in the Harada-Yasutani line of Zen Buddhism, as taught and transmitted by the Western Zen pioneer Robert Aitken.
