Zazen in Chicago | Online and In-Person Courses, Classes, and Retreats

Zazen Meditation, also called Seated Meditation, is a meditative practice within the Zen Buddhist tradition. The ultimate goal of Zazen is to come to insight into the nature of existence by letting go of judgmental thinking and letting words, ideas, images, concepts and thoughts arise without getting attached to them.

Very much depending on the Zazen study or meditation group, several techniques and approaches are practiced, such as various sitting positions, breath counting, or alternating longer Zazen Meditation sessions with Walking Meditation (Kinhin Meditation) and Koan study, to just name a few examples.
