Notes and Events:

The Alexandria Open Meditation Group was created in the spring of 2014 to offer the essence of Zen Buddhism to the Alexandria community without Asian rituals and hierarchies traditionally associated with Zen. The group meets at the Yoga Practice Studio, 1205 Texas Ave, Alexandria, Louisiana on Wednesday evenings at 5:15.

Zazen is an ancient meditation which was developed and taught by the person known as the Buddha around 2500 B.C.E. Zazen is the heart of the practice known as Chan in China and refined as Zen in Japan. The word “zazen” is Japanese and means to sit and give one’s entire body and mind to the present moment; to practice being here and now. Erect posture, regular breathing, and softly open eyes are hallmarks of this meditation. It is a universally available practice which does not require any belief or commitment to a teacher or organization. It is single minded sitting in silence without expectation or goal.

Through daily practice of this meditation we can learn to drop the desires and attachments which cause suffering in our lives.  People with deep religious beliefs or none whatsoever can practice this meditation. Sitting in stillness together underscores our common humanity and equality.

Alexandria Open Meditation Group enables interested persons to experience this meditation practice which many of us find to be beneficial in our daily lives.  The Group meets on Wednesday evenings to sit together for thirty minutes.  Discussions or social outings often flow from our group practice which fosters friendships naturally.

Cushions, benches, and chairs are available but please bring your own if you have them.  A contribution of five dollars each

Notes and Events:

We meet weekly to practice breath awareness meditation, as was taught to me while I was ordained in a forest tradition in Sri Lanka in the 1980s. This website strives to offer an alternative to many retreat-focused approaches to Buddhist meditation, as it recognizes that a large portion of our society simply cannot afford the expense nor the time involved in undertaking retreats. It presents the point of view that spiritual development is at times more thorough-going when undertaken in our daily lives as they are, and for many of us that means living paycheck to paycheck, or raising kids, or taking care of our aging parents. The general approach we take is that at it's core, Buddhism presents a clear, simple and commonsense spirituality for our challenging times.

Notes and Events:

Contact:P.O. Box 2368  Santa Fe  NM 87504
Awakened Life is a re-imagining of the Zen koan tradition that is rooted in its original values: life as a process of awakening; meditation, inquiry, imagination, and relationship as ways to discover and deepen that awakening; and creativity and caring for our world as the natural expression of awakening. We believe that buddha nature is everywhere, and so we value the art and the metaphors, the myths and the landscapes of this time and place. Awakened Life is a constantly evolving field of practice, shaped by the experiences of people right here and now. Enlightenment as a conspiracy of friends.
The Awakened Life programs and community are in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where founding teacher Joan Sutherland lives. Awakened Life forms the center of The Open Source, a network of practice communities and individuals in the western United States committed to co-creation, life in this world, and awakening together.

Notes and Events:

Zen Meditation instruction offered at Awakened Meditation Centre by Zen Master Hwasun Yangil is intended for both beginners and advanced students alike.

Participants are offered a rare opportunity to enrich their inner life and practice under the guidance of an experienced Zen Master.

Instruction is provided in sitting meditation posture, breathing techniques, walking meditation, and Ko-an meditation, to concentrate and awaken the mind.

According to Zen tradition, at a gathering of his disciples Shakyamuni Buddha probed the understanding of his followers about the ultimate goal of His teaching by holding a flower aloft before the assembly. Among the thousand assembled there, only Mahakasyapa is said to have understood the gesture and acknowledged it with a smile. Thereupon, the Enlightened One acknowledged the transmission of the right Dharma eye, the blissful mind of Nirvana and the ultimate reality to the Venerable Mahakasyapa.

The transmission is outside of the scriptures. It aims at the direct pointing at the mind for the perception of self-nature and attainment of enlightenment.

The Zen teaching traces its origin from this transmission. It remains a living tradition, passed on from master to disciple.

From the great traditions of Asia, Zen has found a new home in the hearts of many in North America and Europe.

Zen opens a whole world of possibilities for improving and appreciating ones day-to-day life through mindfulness and awareness of the moment.
