All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it,
no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason
and your own common sense.
The Buddha

We have Beginner’s Instruction on Saturdays at 8:45 AM. This instruction is an opportunity for those of you who have always wanted to learn to meditate. It is also ideal for experienced meditaters who would like a refresher or for those of you who may be new to AZC. The Beginner’s Instruction is followed by a short period of zazen (seated meditation).

Plan to show up about 10 minutes early, wear loose clothing and consider bringing a friend to share the experience. As always, the instruction is free, donations are appreciated (suggested donation $5.00). For more info, call the center at 505-268-4877.
