Sunday Morning Zen

Enjoy Mindfulness Meditation and Fellowship with Others

Each Sunday morning, the Zen Life & Meditation Center offers a program from 9 to 11 am. The program includes meditation, tea, a dharma talk and discussion. The program is FREE and open to everyone. Come and enjoy a Sunday morning of gentle meditation practice, a talk, and fellowship with other like-minded friends.

Most of our Sunday Morning Zen programs will now be incense free. We will still use small amounts of incense during our Buddhist services and Jukai ceremonies.

On the second and fourth Sunday of each month we do a traditional Zen Buddhist service from 8:00 to 8:45 am. Everyone is welcome.

8:30 - 8:50 AM: Meditation
9:00 - 9:45 AM: Meditation (two 20-minute sits with 5 min walking meditation in between)
10 - 11 AM: Dharma Talk

46 Lake Street
Oak Park, IL  60302

All Dharma Talks will be hosted on our Youtube channel, and can be viewed at any time.
