For beginners, a Day of Zen with Michael Mugaku Zimmerman is an opportunity to learn about meditation in a supportive atmosphere. For people familiar with sitting meditation (zazen), a Day of Zen will provide a space for deepening that practice. Meditation practice sitting in a chair is entirely acceptable. You will receive posture and breath instruction — the essence of Zen practice. Participants will:
- Engage in sitting and walking meditation.
- Listen to a Dharma talk and receive meditation instruction.
- Have the opportunity for an individual interview with the teacher (dokusan).
- Enjoy a healthy and delicious lunch we provide, with a vegetarian option.

Zen for Beginners
Thursdays, 7:00-8:15 pm MT
Online, via Zoom
June 2, 9, 16, 23, 2022
Two Arrows Zen welcomes all “beginners”–anyone willing to try experimenting with Zen practices in ordinary life.
The foundational practice of Zen is meditation, a simple practice that is easy to start, impossible to master, and can yield new experience and insight every time it is undertaken. As we refine and focus our mental and emotional capacities through formal sitting, Zen awareness and inquiry percolates throughout every part of life–at work and in relationships, even in exercise, eating, and sleep.
Zen for Beginners, facilitated by Two Arrows Zen Steelyard Sangha monks Craig Tokushin Carter and Matt Yuso Thomas, focuses on the essential elements of Zen meditation, on the cushion and off. As we learn the basics of practice, we’ll also explore key elements of Zen history, ethics, and community that have produced our modern version of this ancient tradition. Together, we’ll explore ways to approach life’s questions and challenges through Zen inquiry in a way that helps clarify intentions and bring greater balance to all we do.
Your registration includes a month of meditation practice with the Steelyard Sangha. We sit every morning, Monday-Friday, and throughout the course you are invited to join when you can, either in person in the Artspace Zendo in Salt Lake City, or online each morning via Zoom. Zen for Beginners is an opportunity to join a supportive community of experienced practitioners as you experiment with your first steps in the way.
As we recite in the famous Zen poem, The Song of the Grass Hut, “Thousands of words, myriad interpretations, are only to free you from obstructions.” We hope this course will help you along that path of liberation.
