Ocean Sangha meets on Monday evenings to practice Zen meditation.
6:45pm to 9pm
Aurora School, 40 Dulwich Road, Oakland
We welcome anyone who wishes to join our practice. Call David at (510) 540-8928 to say you’re coming and to receive a brief orientation.
Our Monday meetings consist of sitting meditation, walking meditation, brief ritual, study and discussion (with tea). You may meet one-on-one with the teacher if you wish. We support our teacher through donation. Suggested donation for the evening is $15.
We have one- and two-day retreats periodically, make annual 5-day visits to Tassajara Zen Monastery or Green Gulch Farm, and hold several ceremonies each year.
Ocean Sangha is affilliated with Branching Streams: practice groups whose leaders were trained at SF Zen Center.
The practice of true reality is simply to sit serenely in silent illumination… Bright and penetrating, you can immediately return, accord, and respond to deal with events…Master Hongzhi
Thank you to Richard Bermack for the photographs.
