Some Definitions – A Small Glossary

Often there are terms used in the practice of Zen that need some defining. Here at Sweetwater Zen Center you’ll often hear us say:

Zazen – Zazen is Zen meditation. You’ll find much more information in the Zen Practice area of our website: http://swzc.org/pages/introduction.html

Council – a group practice of  listening and speaking from the heart. We generally practice council each Wednesday evening, and during Sesshin. You can learn more about Council and how we practice it at: http://swzc.org/pages/council.html

Sesshin is a Zen intensive retreat. Find out more at: http://swzc.org/pages/sesshin.html

Jikido is the timekeeper for Zen practice.
