Weekly Meditation

Regular group meditation is an important part of Zen practice. At Open Mind Zen, we offer sitting meditation for members on Wednesday at noon and Sunday from 10 am to 11:30 am (with Dharma Talk).  Other time periods are generally for members only – please contact us before attending for the first time so we can assess your meditation experience.

Retreats

One-day retreats are a great way to go deeper into meditation practice without taking too much time out of one’s busy schedule. Every month we offer a one-day retreat, with rotating themes and emphasis. All mini-retreats begin at 10 am and to until 4 pm on the last Saturday of the month. Cost is $35 for non OMZ members, $25 for members. Several times a year, we schedule longer (normally 3 day) retreats at Kashi Ashram in Sebastian Florida. These are residential retreats in a beautiful, rural setting. Periodically, we have retreats in Costa Rica or other foreign locales.
