Today the group has over 30 members from diverse backgrounds who form a loosely organized sangha of veteran practitioners and rank beginners. Since it is not affiliated with any specific Zen school, the center invites various Zen masters to lead retreats during the year. All sessions have a format of sitting and walking meditation followed by reading and discussion. Each lasts about two hours. Newcomers are welcome! Saturday orientation for new attendees: 7:15. www.nashvillezencenter.org.
Brand new this spring, the Nashville Zen Center offers a new Tuesday night meeting especially for new sitters or the curious! Also at the Barn, 7 p.m. every Tuesday night.! Contact us for details.
