Heartland Zen is a newly formed meditation practice group dedicated to the teachings of the founder of the Soto Zen tradition, Dogen Zenji, and to the expression of Buddhist principles through speech and action in the wider community.
Services begin with 30 minutes of sitting meditation, followed by a dharma talk, discussion and a vegetarian lunch.
WHEN: Every Saturday morning starting at 11.
***There will be no service on March 9, 2019
due to a previous commitment by the church for
use of our space that day.
