Zazen Meditation

Hard it is to train the mind, which goes where it likes and does what it wants. But a trained mind brings health and happiness.

Austin Aikikai supports students in their meditation practice by providing a structured zazen period on Tuesday evenings. Forms used are from the Rinzai Zen school and we practice under the guidance of Shinge Roshi of the Zen Center of Syracuse Hoen-ji.

Our dojo’s meditation hall is open to all students. All levels of practice are welcome and supported.

Meditation starts at 7:15pm on Tuesdays. Please contact the Dojo for more information.
