Roseburg Zen will meet every Tuesday evening from 5:30-7:00pm at the First Roseburg Presbyterian Church on the corner of Jackson St. and Lane Ave. It is free and open to all regardless of experience. We are not affiliated with any religious denomination.
If you have never meditated this is a good way to begin in a friendly and relaxed setting. If you are an old hand please come by and sit with us. Experience one way or another isn’t required.
If you have your own cushions feel free to bring them but we have chairs available. If you would like to get some beginning instruction before the group meets let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-530-1522.
Enter through the office entrance on Lane Street. From the first floor take first hallway on the left, go all the way to the end to the library, last door on the right. That’s where you’ll find us. You’ll be in the restroom if you go too far. 🙂
We’ll plan to start a little past 6:00pm . Hope to see you there.
About small koan groups;
Ground rules for meetings.
My intention for this group is to support meditative enquiry and conversation. I ask that after meditation you follow the ground rules below until everyone has had an opportunity to share their experience with the koan either during or prior to the meeting.
After it’s apparent that everyone has had an opportunity to share their experience relative to the koan we can move on to more general topics.
2. Leave a short quiet gap after last speaker, before you speak.
3. Do not speak a second time until everyone has spoken that wants to.4. For ending you can say thank you, or bow, or say nothing.
5. After most people have spoken if you don’t want to say anything, you could say “Pass”, “I’ll pass for now”.
