Join the Hood River Zen Meditation group 2nd and 4th Sundays for a sitting and walking meditation, as well as a chanting service followed by tea and discussion. This space is held by Kyri Kengen Treiman and this group is affiliated with the Dharma Rain Zen Center, a Soto Zen temple for lay practice.
