Sunday Morning Service

Sunday mornings  we meet for sitting and walking meditation, a chanting service, and a Dharma discussion. 

Zazen, a seated meditation taught mainly in the Zen schools, is our principal type of meditation, although any type of still silent meditation is appropriate. We sit for 25 minute periods, punctuated by 5 minutes of walking meditation (kinhin).

Red Clay Sangha's chanting service begins immediately following Zazen and consists of chanting the Repentances, Refuges, and Heart Sutra. 

We generally end the morning with a dharma discussion and then lunch at a nearby establishment.

Please come out and join us some Sunday morning.

If you need meditation instruction, please come early and we can give you a brief introduction. 

It is not necessary to be present for the entire schedule, but please be mindful of the disruption to others when entering and leaving. 

Precepts Renewal Ceremony

At or near each full moon we have a brief ceremony to renew our commitment to practice the Buddhist precepts. This ceremony takes place immediately after the chanting service on those Sundays and is often followed by a dharma talk about the precepts. The ceremony we use can be found here...
