Do you live near Lafayette or pass by there from time to time? An older gentleman and longtime Zen practitioner named Sid, who lives at a nursing facility in Lafayette, has requested visitors from our Sangha to come and meditate with him. Two of us have been doing so for several months, and he deeply appreciates the support for his practice. Sid is totally lucid and meditates every day but is confined to a wheelchair and cannot leave the facility due to physical problems. Visits can be regular or irregular and can be arranged with Sid directly via email.

If you’d like to learn more and perhaps visit Sid, please contact Matt Zepelin:

Seigen Amy Roberston, a longtime student of Zentatsu Baker Roshi, will offer an informal introduction to Zen practice at 9:00 a.m., at the Briar Rose Bed and Breakfast, 2151 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder. Just come in the front door and ask any of the Briar Rose staff to help you find the zendo (meditation room).

Registration is not required, but if possible, please email Amy in advance to let her know you’ll be coming: amy.robertson ‘at’
The session will last until 10:30 or 11:00 a.m., depending on the group, and how many questions people bring. This event will provide an introduction to Zen practice and its forms, and provide plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions. The event is free and open to everyone; donations to the Boulder Zen Center will be accepted. Please contact Amy via email if you have questions.
