Summer Zazen Meditation In Japanese Friendship Garden

Victoria Nogales

PHOENIX, AZ-There will be Summer Zazen Meditation in the Japanese Friendship Garden on August 27 2021 from 7:00 a.m until 8:00 a.m. The Japanese practice of zazen meditation involves sitting on a cushion with the back straight, the legs crossed, and concentrating on the breath while being silent for a period of time. The word Zen originates from Sanskrit which means "attention to the present moment". Zazen is best practiced with comfortable clothing and shoelaces that are easy to take off. Please bring a yoga mat or anything you may need to sit on as comfortably as possible. There is no experience required.

In addition, you will also experience a slice of Japan at this exquisitely maintained 3.5-acre garden, complete with a 12-foot waterfall feeding streams and a pond overflowing with 300 koi.
