Beginning Zen Seminars

Zazen Mudra

We offer Introduction to Zen for Beginners seminars on Sunday afternoon of each month from 2-5pm and every Wednesday each week from 9am-12nn. In this three hour orientation seminar for beginners we offer the basics of Zen meditation and grounding in the practice of Mindfulness meditation. This workshop will include short periods of sitting meditation, walking meditation, and informal talks relating to actual Zen practice. There will be plenty of time for questions, discussion and sharing. There is no pressure or expectation to join anything, or continue coming after your initial visit.

Sitting Meditation (zazen) and Mindfulness Meditation are simple and effective methods for self awareness. These practices offer you a path toward balance, grounding and personal growth. It is down to earth and practical—nothing mysterious or esoteric. It cultivates our inherent capability for meeting life’s challenges with openness, clarity and compassion. We can gain personal experience of inner peace and well being by applying them in our daily life-at home or workplace. Anyone, regardless of religious belief, social or educational background can benefit greatly from these practices.

If one chooses to go deeper into Zen, there follows a three (3) weekend Orientation Workshop after the seminar.

Seminars and orientations are held at the Baguio Zen Center Tea House Zendo, ICM House of Prayer, C.M. Recto Road, Baguio City.

What to Bring: you don’t need to bring anything.

What to Wear:  When you come to the zendo for sitting meditation be sure to wear non-eye catching, loose and comfortable clothing that covers most of your skin. Shorts should be knee length or longer. Colors should be subdued and solid, preferably of the darker shades (blacks, grey, blue) without writing or distracting prints. Also, no cell phones in the zendo. If you happen to have it with you, be sure all notification noises and vibrations are turned completely off.

There is a Php 200.00 suggested donation for every seminar (total of 3 consecutive seminars). If you can’t afford the suggested donation, please pay an amount that is within your means. Everyone is welcome.

Find a local group near you. The best way to learn Zen meditation is from a teacher or experienced practitioners, but if you are not able to come to the Baguio Zen Center please visit our affiliate Zen Centers nearest you. Information and support is available from our community of practitioners.
