Seigen Amy Robertson, a longtime Zen practitioner and 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 him 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 if you have any questions.
In anticipation of the fourth annual Dharma Sangha Boulder Winter Practice Program (WPP), which will begin on February 9th and last till April 19th, there will be an interest meeting in the living room of the Briar Rose from 6:00-7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 8th. This year’s WPP will be led by Zenki Dillo Roshi (Guiding Teacher) and Seigen Amy Robertson (local Practice Leader).
The WPP is an opportunity for people to voluntarily intensify their practice for a period of several months. Participants make their own commitments based on their intentions and life circumstances, with support from Dharma teaching, fellow practitioners, and a “practice buddy.” People who are interested in joining the program and did not participate in previous years are encouraged to attend. Those who have participated before are also welcome to come, as there may be a few changes to the structure of the 2020 program based on feedback received from previous participants. Attending the interest meeting is encouraged but is not a requirement for joining the program.
If you have questions, please contact Amy at amy.robertson ‘at’
