At the Zen Center Manila, we view introducing Zen and Mindfulness meditation to the public as a service we offer to the community, regardless of whether or not you decide to continue after your first visit. Our teaching and methods are focused on two principles: providing a venue for personal spiritual development and familiarizing people with standardized Zen training practices, protocols and etiquette.
We hold regular Zazenkai (sitting meditation) in the Heroes Hill Zendo in Quezon City every Sunday and at the UP Diliman Bonsai Garden every Wednesday. We conduct Orientation workshops, zazenkai (sitting meditation in a group) and sesshin (zen retreat).
We’re here to answer your questions about the Zen Center Manila’s programs and to support your practice however we can. Please don’t hesitate to reach out—we’d be glad to hear from you. To learn about how you can practice zen, visit our Beginning Zen Page.
