San Francisco Zen Center Meditation Session w/ Asian Art Museum

Learn how to meditate with a teacher from the San Francisco Zen Center. This virtual session for beginners will introduce you to the benefits of meditation, which can help settle the body and mind amid the swirl of daily life. Sitting in a balanced posture creates a steady calm that, with training, can become the way you meet whatever arises. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and find a good place to sit, or lie down, during the session.

Online sessions with San Francisco Zen Center will also be held the second Saturdays of each month from 10:30–11:30 a.m.
