What to Expect

Visitors are always welcome.

No prior knowledge about Tendai Buddhism or meditation is required.

Tuesday Shikan Service

Our Tuesday services emphasize Shikan meditation. We also conduct a short chanting service, followed by a brief Dharma talk.

Sunday Sutra Service

On Sundays, our service has more of an emphasis on the Tendai Daily Service. This service creates a sacred space conducive to mindfulness that will enable greater focus during the Shikan mediation that follows. We end the service with a short Dharma talk. After Sunday services, we have tea and cookies together.
