Schedule of Practice

Weekly Practice and Other Activities

Our weekly practice and retreats in Spokane are open to all. Although our orientation and form is Buddhist, you do not need to be a Buddhist to participate. Practitioners from all traditions are welcome.

We meet on Saturday mornings from 8:00 am to 9:30 am in the Saranac meditation room, 25 W Main, Spokane. Our Saturday morning schedule consists of three (3) 25-minute sitting periods and includes a short sutra recital.

Orientation to Zen practice is offered on Saturdays, before or after meditation practice, by arrangement. (The reason is that our meditation hall is in a building that is locked to protect the tenants from theft) Once you come to a session, we can give you the number to get into the building yourself. 

Please contact us (see contact page) before coming for the first time.

    I’m wondering how I can set up a time to come sit in one week and see what your program is all about.

    Hello. I am interested in joining your Wednesday night sitting this week, and possibly ongoing. I am a returning old zen student from Dharma Rain Zen Center in Portland, so I’d be happy to get any orientation to your way of doing things, as appropriate. Thanks, Janet

    I am interested in attending a sitting session.

    Because of a back issue, I am unable to sit in the traditional manner. Are there sitting benches available?

    thank you,
