Friday Night Zen: A meditation group for people in early adulthood
1st Friday of each month, 6:30-8:00, with evenings typically extending until 8:30
At Clouds in Water

Friday Night Zen is a meditation group for people in early adulthood. We meet at Clouds in Water Zen Center in St. Paul on the first Friday of each month, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., for a 30-minute partly-guided meditation. This is followed by discussion and sharing on the evening's topic, especially as it relates to the unique experiences of those in the first half of life. For new or experienced Buddhists or meditators. Evenings typically extend to 9 p.m. for optional tea, snacks, and socializing.
