Saturday Morning Precept Study Group


“The meaning of the precepts is in living them”

Join us on Saturday mornings for a drop-in precept study group for all comers: those who have taken the precepts, those who are thinking about taking the precepts or already working on a rakusu, and anyone who is interested in exploring this set of instructions for living a skillful life.

Saturday morning zazen is from 9:30 am –10:30 am, and the precept group will meet from 10:30 am – noon, so you can come at 9:30 and enjoy two periods of meditation, or come at 10:30 and join us for precept study.

No charge; donations gratefully accepted.
