Zen-style Meditation

Take the backwards step that turns your own light inward


Idyllwild Community Zen meets on Thursday evenings from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Practice includes one 30-minute period of sitting meditation, and a facilitated discussion.

Ceremony: On the last Thursday of each month, Idyllwild Community Meditation includes a Way of Council process of sharing about life and practice together in community. This also includes the study of Buddhist precepts for living an awakened life, and other topics selected by the participants.




Ritual: Chanting is incorporated into the practice times. Rituals for seasonal and life passages are also included.

Retreats: Day-long and multiple day retreats are offered that include meditation, ceremony and Dharma talks.
