The Milwaukee Zen Center offers practice and study in the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism.

This tradition emphasizes a practice of shikantaza or "just sitting" as a way for us to come to understand the reality of each moment. As we wholeheartedly sit, we begin to understand how our own minds prevent us from being complete just as we are.

If you’re a small business owner, you might have heard of Facebook advertising, but wondered how it could help your company grow. Fortunately, Facebook ads can be one of the most effective ways to boost your business – as long as you use them correctly. In this comprehensive guide on how to do Facebook ads with one of the best facebook marketing company, we’ll take you through the following topics: what Facebook ads are, how they work, how to create an ad campaign and measure its success, and so much more! By the end of this guide, you’ll have all the tools you need to know how to do Facebook ads correctly. Facebook advertising allows you to promote your business and its offerings on Facebook and through other websites that are part of Facebook’s ad network. When you advertise on Facebook, your ads will show up on mobile devices as well as computer screens. This makes it a great way to increase interest in your business if more people are using their mobile devices to check out what businesses they like on social media. If you’re reading up on Facebook ads, chances are that your business is already using them to some extent. If not, why not? Facebook is one of social media’s leading marketing platforms, with 1.18 billion active monthly users in North America. It should come as no surprise that Facebook offers several ad products targeted towards businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Unlike mountains, rivers, trees, clouds and lakes, we constantly seek to be other than we are, dissatisfied with who and what we think we are.

As we sit, we gradually come more into the present moment, neither clinging to nor pushing away the thoughts that come into our minds. This is zazen, or zen sitting, which is to be here and now with our whole body and mind, not constantly judging this moment and wishing it were other than it is.

We sit quietly in an upright posture, using cushions, kneeling benches and chairs.

You are invited to join us in this practice at any of the scheduled times. The door will be open.
