Christian Zen At Lime Rock Baptist Church

A Spiritual Journey

At the October meeting of the Lime Rock Meditation Group we adopted a Zen format for the session. This gives us a regular structure for the meetings and allows us to invite “Guiding Teachers” from the Zen tradition. We are fortunate to have an affiliation with the Day Star Zendo, a Christian Zen group at the Trappist Abbey of Mount St. Mary’s in Wrentham, Massachusetts. We are blessed with the bounty of spiritual traditions from the East and the West.

The Zen meeting is structured in three parts after a brief beginning ceremony. There is a sitting meditation, a walking meditation and a teaching moment. Participants are invited to choose the style of sitting that they find comfortable. You may sit Asian style, on a pillow and a cushion, or you may choose to sit European Style, on chair or pew.

We encourage people who may be interested in meditation and may never have done this to join us. We have “Zen for Beginners” orientation sessions on the first session of each month. Skilled or otherwise, we appreciate the blessing of your presence. See schedule below:
