Twining Vines offers an opportunity to meditate together once a week in the Zen style practiced at San Francisco Zen Center.
We meet each Tuesday night at 7:30. After bowing in, we meditate in silence for 35 minutes. In the remaining 20 minutes, we generally read a Zen text together and discuss it, although our resident priest sometimes gives a talk.
Our address is 200 Industrial Road #122 [? map] (enter on the south side of the building) in San Carlos. If you are accustomed to sitting on a zafu, please bring it with you. Chairs are available. There’s ample parking at the site.
If you’re new to meditation, instruction is available before the sitting on request; email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment.
Teachings are always offered free of charge, but donations to help make the rent are appreciated.
