Stillpoint is a lay Zen community committed to making Zen practice truly accessible to the Pittsburgh community. We offer introductions to zazen, a morning and evening sitting schedule, Sunday service, monthly day-long sittings, and occasional special events, including retreats led by visiting teachers.
The first week of December is a very meaningful time of the year for Buddhists. In the zen tradition it is customary to hold a week long sesshin culminating with Bodhi day on the 8th day of the 12th lunar month, commemorating the awakening of Shakyamuni Buddha. This year Bodhi day falls on Sunday 8th December 2013.
To honor this tradition there will be daily sitting at Stillpoint starting with the Sunday service on Sunday December 1st and ending on Bodhi Day, Sunday December 8th.
We hope you will be able to join us during any part of the zazen schedule (even for just one 30 minute sit!)
