Weekly Zazen at Dharma Gate

We offer practice in sitting meditation, called Zazen. On Wednesday nights, you can also meet individually with a teacher.

  • Wednesday evenings 6:30pm—8:30pm; in person and Zoom.
  • Friday — mornings 6:30—7:30am, followed by breakfast and a discussion of practice-related topics; held by Zoom at this time.

Zazenkais and Sesshins

Zazenkais are one- or two-day meditation retreats, held monthly at Dharma Gate. Sesshins are longer retreats—usually seven days—that include sitting and walking meditation, chanting, talks by the teacher, and student-teacher interviews. Sesshins are held at Mountain Lamp, our affiliated retreat center near Bellingham, Washington.
