Event Details

class is taught by Rev. Miki Nakura, of Higashi Hongan-ji temple in Kyoto, and the Jodo-Shinshu Shin Buddhist New York Sangha, will lead a seiza meditation in English.

Seiza meditation is done in a kneeling position or seated on a chair with the body inclined slightly forward. When some of the first Westerners, such as Ruth Fuller Sasaki, went to Japan in the twentieth century to seek instruction in Zen, D. T. Suzuki and other Zen teachers sometimes recommended they take up seiza meditation as a complement to zazen. In this spirit, Rev. Miki Nakura offers instruction and leads seiza meditation sessions in various locations throughout New York City.
