Those attending for the first time should join from seven to nine p.m. and request beginning instruction which is provided free of charge by a senior student each week.  With prior arrangement, free childcare can be provided from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. (call 503 949-3188 to request).

It is possible to then attend just the 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. meditation or just the 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. program or both. The full Wednesday evening program is structured to offer a short weekly Zazenkai for the more serious/ long-term Zen student (from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. with service positions assigned to those who are able).
