The Winona Zen Practice Community is dedicated to the practice of Zen meditation and the teachings of Buddhism.
We are affiliated with the Dharma Field Meditation and Learning Center in Minneapolis.
In Winona, we currently offer 3 meditation practice periods a week and a meditation instruction class once a month.
We welcome everyone.
Meditation Practice Periods
* Each practice period includes 25 minutes of sitting meditation (zazen), 10 minutes of walking meditation(kinhin), and 25 additional minutes of sitting meditation (zazen).
** Please plan to be in the meditation hall at least 5 minutes before the scheduled sitting time. (If you are new to this group, please contact Trish Johnson or Paul Stern for an orientation.)
During the winter months, we suggest dressing warm for meditation.
