Zen Practice

The community is invited to practice  Zen meditation with Horton Road’s farm partner, Debra Seido Martin. Seido is a transmitted lay Zen teacher from Dharma Rain Zen Center in Portland and leads a sangha, Zen West, that meets weekly in Eugene. Practicing Zen on the farm is enhanced by the simplicity of the setting, integrating work in the garden and careful handling of fruits and vegetables fresh from the fields. As a farmer, the teachings of mindful presence, interdependence and ethical action inform us directly in how we tend the natural world and its human community.  If you’d like to find out more about Zen practice on the farm, please contact Seido: debraseido@gmail.com
