What To Wear and Other Etiquette for Zazen Meditation at CZC-STL

1. It’s best to wear comfortable, modest clothing which does not bind the legs, and which extends beyond the knees (no shorts, please), and which covers the shoulders. It is also recommended that you wear muted colors or dark tones, and avoid wearing visible logos or graphics as might appear on a t-shirt.

2. Please do not wear hats or gloves in the zendo.

3. Please be sensitive those with chemical allergies by not wearing scented lotions, perfume, or other fragrances.

4. Remove noisy jewelry, disarm watch-timers, and put cell phones on mute before entering the zendo.

Thank you.
