This Month

Welcome to the Lincroft Zen Sangha Fall Practice Period! 

During the monsoon season, Shakyamuni Buddha’s sangha would settle in one place to study and train together. In the Japanese Zen tradition, this training period is called Ango, or “Peaceful Dwelling.” Since we do not live together, we call our 90-day observance a Practice Period and, in the spirit of peaceful dwelling, refocus our training as individuals and as a Sangha.

During the Practice Period, Zazen is the primary practice. We also emphasize training yourself in The Three Tenets throughout the day: train yourself to return to not- knowing, to listen deeply, and to recognize actions that arise spontaneously which serve the whole.

Please consider the commitment you can make to focus your Zen training.
