San Francisco Zen Center Meditation Session


Learn how to meditate with Dr. Lucy Xiao of the San Francisco Zen Center. This virtual session for beginners will introduce you to the benefits of meditation, which can help settle the body and mind amid the swirl of daily life. Sitting in a balanced posture creates a steady calm that, with training, can become the way you meet whatever arises. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and find a good place to sit, or lie down, during the session. 

Xiao is a Zen priest at San Francisco Zen Center and a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She grew up in Guangzhou, China, and has been practicing Zen for 20 years. Her deep roots in China combined with western influences have expanded the horizons of her practice and the ways she shares the dharma with others. While she is not sitting in meditation, she is connected with the wider world through teaching mindfulness and her holistic medicine practice


Online sessions with San Francisco Zen Center will also be held the second Saturdays of each month from 10:30–11:30 a.m.
