Our Programs

There are many ways to get involved and deepen your practice with the Still Point through our variety of ongoing programs:


In addition to retreats, Still Point offers classes in Zen meditation, Buddhist teachings and history, Zen arts, and mindfulness in daily life. With the exception of the meditation class, which is offered twice a year, classes and seminars are constantly changing, with unique offerings every year. Our Events Calendar includes our upcoming classes. For more information and detailed class descriptions, see our Classes page.

One Sangha Training Programdae bul do

Grounded in daily, traditional Zen practices and compassionate activity as form and function of our everyday lives, Still Point’s One Sangha Training Program is a three-, six-, or nine-month intensive practice program for anyone wishing to deepen her or his spiritual practice right inside the ten thousand joys and sorrows of our often wonderfully chaotic lives.


In 2014, Still Point is very happy to partner the Ruth Ellis Center, a Highland Park-based organization that provides “short-term and long-term residential safe space and support services for runaway, homeless and at-risk gay, lesbian, bi-attractional, transgender and questioning youth.” Checkout our Outreach page for more information.
